District-Wide - New Mission and Vision
The RCSD School Board updated and approved the new RCSD Mission and Vision Statement at the last Board meeting. The language below will guide RCSD work moving forward. The language was taken from the discussions of the Equity Committee and formed by Dr. Baker and the School Board Members.
RCSD creates a safe and supportive, inspirational and rigorous, joyful and inclusive environment for all learners.
RCSD will be a thriving, dynamic, innovative, and nurturing community where each student realizes their unique gifts and strengths to achieve high intellectual performances for personal and academic success.
RCSD has a collective responsibility to achieve our vision through a commitment to these values
To analyze systemic practices, including racial biases, through an equity consciousness lens that dismantle barriers to student learning and emotional well being
To encourage students' bravery, voice and leadership
To instill passion in learning emphasizing student strengths and gifts for all learners: all abilities, all ethnicities and cultural identities, LGBTQ+ youth, and multilingual learners
To offer opportunities and access to joyful, rigorous, and enriching instruction and resources
To build family and community partnerships for student success
