From Our Superintendent / My Mentor – My Story

Our community and country are in the middle of a season that has provided extensive opportunities for growth and awareness around systemic racism and discrimination.

A picture appeared on our School Board president’s personal Facebook page. Its content was offensive, to say the least. This picture was taken down, and Mr. Clawson has issued a public apology on his Facebook page. You may also view it on his D38 profile page:

D38 remains committed to non-discrimination in relation to race, creed, color, gender, ancestry, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, age, and/or disability. D38 will support our students, staff, families, and community with equity. We will not tolerate harassment or discrimination of students and/or staff based on the aforementioned areas.

Dr. K.C. Somers, D38 Superintendent, said in his June 5 comments about his mentor (, “I firmly believe that what’s happening today in our country provides an opportunity for a reawakening of the ideals and hopes that our country is founded upon … “with liberty and justice for all.” Let us work on better understanding our differences and take the time to learn more about ways that we can support each other and take a stand against racism.” In upcoming months, D38 will take the time to further engage in difficult conversations about these issues with our students, families, and staff. We will learn and grow together.
