Cedar Rapids Community School District joins the nation in marking Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

What advice and words of wisdom would Dr. King give us in these times? What would he inspire us to do today and every day? I am sure he would send a message about improving the lives of others.

At CRCSD, we continue to make efforts to be inclusive of all students, staff and faculty and to continue the journey to bring equity and inclusion to all aspects of our district. Even during the pandemic and post-derecho, we have continually asked how we can assure that we provide access and equity to all students. We are committed to this work, and we recognize there is work to do.

During the month of February, we will be celebrating diversity and Black History with stories from our students and staff. This is our effort to reflect MLK's legacy and our district's vision, "Every Learner: Future Ready."
