"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:
