                      Ankeny Community School District
             Statement of Educational Philosophy (Policy #100.00)
It is the educational philosophy of the District to meet the needs of all citizens in this District. The educational
opportunities are both comprehensive and flexible enough to provide for the changing requirements of society.
A prime concern is to provide a learning environment of superior quality for all citizens.

To ensure equity for all people, it is the policy of the District not to discriminate on the basis of race, sex,
national origin, creed, age, religion, marital status, as well as individual abilities and/or disabilities in its edu-
cational programs, activities, or employment policies as required by Title VI and Title XIII of the 1964 Civil
Rights Act, Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendment, and the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Because education is a lifelong process, the purpose of the school requires the teaching of specific skills, back-
ground information, and basic understandings which will prepare students for lifelong situations. A vital part
of this process must involve instruction to aid students in understanding and respecting the American heritage
and our pluralistic society. The District is dedicated to providing academic, cultural, social, vocational, and
co-curricular as well as extracurricular experiences. In addition, the District joins the home and the community
in helping individuals develop a system of mores, standards, personal values, and global understanding.

The role of the professional educator in this process is to motivate, inspire, and direct students to sources of
information. With this in mind, the District is committed to providing competent personnel who recognize the
dignity and worth of every person and acknowledge that each individual has potential that should be encouraged.
It is the District’s belief that each student’s effort and achievement should be evaluated in light of individual
needs, interests, and capabilities in order to facilitate educational experiences that are conducive to continuous
educational growth.

    Area Education Agency Services
    Our School District is very fortunate in having the A.E.A. office located near Ankeny. Many services are available through staff
    members at their office. Catalogues are available in each building media center for films and other software materials that are
    available for teacher checkout. It is necessary to use the computer form when requesting materials. The same information is
    necessary when calling in your order (270-9030). The lamination of materials should be referred to your building principal
    before being forwarded to the print shop or the A.E.A. office.

    Consult your building principal and he/she can put you in contact with the specific people at the A.E.A. for assistance.

     Abuse of Students by District Employees
     It is the policy of the District that school employees not commit acts of physical or sexual abuse, including inap-
     propriate and intentional sexual behavior, toward students. Any school employee who commits such acts is subject
     to disciplinary sanctions up to and including discharge.

     It is the policy of the District to respond promptly to allegations of abuse of students by school employees by
     investigating or arranging full investigation of any allegation, and to do so in a reasonably prudent manner. The
     processing of a complaint or allegation will be handled confidentially to the maximum extent possible. All
     employees are required to assist in the investigation when requested to provide information and to maintain the
     confidentiality of the reporting and investigating process.

     The designated investigator for the abuse of students by District employees is Dr. Anne Laing, Associate Su-
     perintendent, (515) 965-9600. The alternate investigator is Thomas Ahart, Assistant Human Resource Director
     (515) 965-9600.


     Student Directory and Information
     Student directory information designed to be used internally to assist certified personnel is not accessible to the
     public. Student directory and general student information will be provided to the public for school related activities
     and/or educational opportunities without parents’/guardians’ consent unless the parents/guardians have notified the
     administration, in writing, by September 15 (or within two weeks of the student’s enrollment, should it occur after
     this date), that they do not want their minor student’s information published without their consent. These rights
     transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18.

     Directory information may include, but not be limited to, the student’s name, photograph or likeness, age (but not
     date of birth), participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic
     teams, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, the most recent previous educational agency or institution
     attended by the student, and other similar information.
