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.
