Prescott School Board votes to certify non-discrimination report to state

A state-required report on non-discrimination efforts in the Prescott School District was unanimously approved by the Prescott School Board at its monthly meeting Wednesday evening.

The report is required by state law to be filled put every five years. The board voted to approve the report and submit it to the Department of Public Instruction. The report shows district needs to fill gaps in test scores between boys and girls and in discipline rates for special education or special needs students and participation in extra curricular acitivitie.

"I think what's nice about this reports is that shows not everything is hunky-dory in the district," board member Steve Sizemore said. "It shows where we need to improve and the efforts we're taking to fix the problems we have."
