RCS District Equity Statement

Rochester Community Schools is committed to providing an equitable education that prepares all students for an interdependent, evolving world. We believe in a unified culture of belonging for all.  We recognize that systemic inequities exist that create educational equity gaps among various identity groups, specifically those who have been marginalized.  Through a multifaceted approach of inclusion, we commit to creating opportunities and access, protecting the well-being of all, eliminating barriers, and educating within a safe environment where all individuals are valued, respected, included, welcomed, and acknowledged.


District Equity Committee

Our shared commitment to this work is to ensure that all students receive what they need through our collaborative work effort to generate recommendations of goals for district-wide equity centered improvements.

The RCS District Equity Committee uses the Building Equitable Learning Environments (BELE) Framework as a guide as they work to transform student experiences and learning outcomes.
