Advocacy at RPS

  • RPS Teachers marching in Red For ED

    RPS believes that everyone can be an advocate! Whether for yourself, a friend or family member in need, or for public education policies and funding, advocacy is integral to the success of our students and well-being of our families and community.

    The Department of Advocacy and Outreach supports informing and empowering students, educators, parents, and community members to be positive and influential advocates for public education and RPS. Make sure to follow us on Facebook or sign up for our RPS Direct email list for additional updates and advocacy opportunities.
