Superintendent's Advisory Councils
Superintendent’s Advisory Councils
Superintendent Jason Kamras hosts several advisory councils throughout the school year to bring together members of our community to advise the RPS leadership team, join together in advocacy, and work in partnership to achieving RPS’s goals. This year, our advisory councils will collaborate and provide significant input on the RPS strategic planning process.
All advisory councils meet monthly during the school year (approximately October through May). Please see below for more information, application links, and staff points of contact for each council.
Multilingual Learner Success Advisory Council (MLSAC)
The Multilingual Learner Success Advisory Council brings together members from diverse backgrounds to engage as partners in the educational process with the Superintendent and administration. Monthly council meetings provide the space for those most connected to the multilingual learner community to support our students and families and to work in partnership to achieve RPS goals.
Interested members may apply to serve on the MLSAC by completing the application in English or Spanish by October 6, 2023. Applications in additional languages will be available soon! For more information, please reach out to Dr. Jennifer Blackwell at email@example.com.
Parent & Caregivers Advisory Council (PAC)
The Parent & Caregivers Advisory Council brings together parents from diverse backgrounds to engage as partners in the educational process with the Superintendent and administration. Monthly council meetings provide the space for those most connected to our students to advocate and work in partnership to achieve RPS goals.
Student Advisory Council (SAC)
The Student Advisory Council brings together RPS high school students to help shape policy, ensure that student voice is a meaningful part of decision-making and advocacy efforts, and serves as a bridge between the administration and the RPS student body.
Students are nominated to participate by their Principals. For more information, please reach out to Darryl Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teacher Advisory Council (TAC)
The Superintendent’s Teacher Advisory Council (TAC) brings together teachers to help shape policy and ensure rigorous and exciting teaching and learning for all our students. TAC's work will focus on a variety of areas, including advocacy, curriculum, professional learning, culture & climate, and equity. TAC will continue to work on identifying ways to learn, empower, and collaborate to ensure teacher voices are heard.
Interfaith Advisory Council (IAC)
The Interfaith Advisory Council brings together an inclusive group of faith-based leaders from various religions and denominations to aid our work in student support and family engagement. Whether volunteering as Reading Buddies to support RPS literacy goals or visiting community members alongside RPS staff to share important information and build relationships, IAC members are an integral part of RPS engagement efforts.
