Advocacy & Outreach
We believe change is possible and largely within our control!
The Department of Advocacy and Outreach provides the tools and resources necessary to engage our community in being part of that change. Our department is responsible for embedding and amplifying a culture of advocacy within RPS by informing our communities, empowering advocates, and sharing the stories of our students, staff, and families.
At RPS, we believe in embedding a culture of advocacy throughout the division with our core advocacy strategy to inform, empower, and share. Explore our Advocacy Hub to learn more about our legislative priorities and how you can get involved to advocate for RPS!
Access to the resources and services you need, in a language you understand, is an educational right for all students and their families. The Language Justice Team oversees all interpretation and translation services and helps engage with the entire non-English speaking community.
We want to engage with you! Through the use of modern and easy to use interactive communications platforms, we want the RPS community to be informed about all of the news, programs, and resources available to our students, families, staff, and community.
The Media Relations Team serves as the point of contact for all media inquiries, building access for press, and is here to support sharing and uplifting the amazing stories of the RPS community!
