"One of Rochester Public Schools’ (RPS) core beliefs is that equity is a lens through which all decisions should be made.
On July 21, 2020, Superintendent Munoz updated the board with a three-year equity plan, accounting for the $169,000 enhancement in year one. The equity plan was developed with feedback from a variety of stakeholders:

Equity Specialists

American Indian Liaison

Employees of Color Resource Group (EoCRG)


Other employees of color

Students of color

Coordinator of Equity

The common feedback themes across all stakeholders was similar:

Representation in the curriculum/anti-racist curriculum

Direct support for students/families of color (Additional equity specialist)

Recruitment/ Retainment of Staff of Color

Cabinet position

Professional development in cultural competence/anti-racism

Discipline/achievement data"
