Building Equity at Bowler School District
Promising practices in creating equity across a rural school district. This story demonstrates the possibilities of real change over time with commitment to the actual work, which includes coming together and having difficult conversations. When Glenda Butterfield-Boldig began as Superintendent in 2020, she envisioned creating equitable spaces and opportunities. Staff initially needed clarification about this commitment to equity because they thought it would be a seasonal change that would come and go in their district. But Glenda's commitment to creating equity for all children with real opportunities for every child to succeed was not just a flavor of the day or the moment.
