On July 23, 2020, the Rockwood School District adopted a Equity Resolution. The Equity Resolution states that the RSD board of education and Superintendent want to ensure that every student and staff member can fully realize the District’s mission statement, “we do whatever it takes to ensure that all students realize their potential”. The Department of Educational Equity and Diversity, (DEED) will utilize “The Way Forward”, Rockwood’s strategic plan, as a guide to supporting students in fulfilling this mission.
The Department of Educational Equity and Diversity understands that the entire Rockwood school community plays an integral role in impacting every student's educational career. With that, we identified 4 key groups to support the positive school community we all deserve: Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Champions, affinity groups, Rockwood Equity Parent Advisory Committee (REPAC) and most importantly, Rockwood Student Equity Advisory Team (RSEAT).
The members of each group volunteer their time and resources, meeting monthly with the Director of Educational Equity & Diversity to discuss our progress towards the universal equity, opportunity, and access goals outlined in “The Way Forward”.
