Anti-Racism/Anti Oppression (ARAO) Hotline

The Anti-Racism/Anti Oppression (ARAO) Hotline is a resource created by the Black Education Act (House Bill 43) that is available for students, families, staff, community members, or any stakeholder to report school-based incidents of racism, injustice, or discrimination against anyone.

The hotline provides a variety of ways to file an incident report and operates under IPRA and FERPA guidelines.

There is no expectation for anonymity when reporting to the ARAO Hotline. The Hotline utilizes the information reported to encourage communication, and positive engagement of all parties during the follow-up process.
