Rio Rancho Public Schools Equity Council

Our Commitment to Equity

Rio Rancho Public Schools is dedicated to supporting students, families, and staff through systematic implementation of best practices and bold innovation, with the goal of becoming a national model of broad participation, full inclusion, equity, and social justice in an urban school district. With this target in mind, we are proud to work with students, families, staff, and administration to ensure that all Rio Rancho Public School District schools and offices are welcoming and nurturing environments.

Common Definition of Equity

Equity is an intentional process of acknowledging and removing obstacles and barriers. Through equity, environments and opportunities are fostered to support individual and group needs, with access to resources, so that all may reach their potential.

Equity Council

The RRPS Equity Council is a group of stakeholders whose purpose will be to become informed of equity as it relates to the school district, and provide feedback to the District Core Team.
