IowaWatch reporter Hannah Soyer obtained equity review documents from the Iowa Department of Education for reviews conducted from the fall of 2010 through February 2016.

Since 2010, the Iowa Department of Education has inspected 48 school districts in the districts’ annual equity review, and all except one had areas of non-compliance with the ADA. The largest categories of non-compliance were parking and passenger loading zones, with a combined 336 citations, followed by toilet rooms with 157 and entrances with 122.
