Advocacy at RPS

  •  Love our Kids Fund our Schools

    RPS believes that change is possible and largely within our control! The Department of Advocacy and Outreach provides tools and resources necessary to engage our community in being part of that change. By sharing information on public education policies and funding allocation, we empower students, educators, parents, and community members to become actively engaged and part of the change possible to improve public education for all.
