We believe that every child has a right to a safe, high quality educational experience at RRISD, and are working to remove barriers that interfere with this opportunity. We believe in the power of a strong community voice, and in centering the experience of students and families in our priorities. We believe in advocating for solutions, working in collaboration with district administration, and in keeping a constructive outlook as we call for change.
We are firmly committed to data-driven decision making and fact-based discourse. We do not endorse any form of bullying, harassment, or disrespect. We will not disparage any communities or individuals, no matter how firmly we disagree with them.
Foremost is the idea of equity. We will hold the district and school board accountable to ensure that RRISD’s decision-making and strategic plan delivers solutions that recognize and embrace diversity, and addresses inequities effectively.
We will work to create more frequent and effective means of gathering community input on student and learning priorities to ensure district leadership is aware of issues currently facing our children and families.
We will work towards ensuring an effective and functioning board that places the interest of our children and families above political aspirations.
Since summer 2021, members of the group have been vocal advocates to keep our children and communities healthy by keeping masks in schools, and following local public health authority and CDC guidelines for safe school re-opening. We have also been organizing to bring together voices from the AAPI, Black, and Latinx communities around issues important to these families. Members of our group have been working across various RRISD campuses to implement safe outdoor lunches and to keep virtual school available for students who cannot safely attend in person. We have also worked to empower students and advocate for changes to the RRISD dress code so that it is more equitable and fair. And we have hosted multiple events to bring prospective candidates and community members together to listen to one-another.
Going forward, we are developing effective and sustainable organizing and communication structures so that our voices are not drowned-out by fringe right-wing politics. In November 2022, four of our seven Round Rock ISD Trustee seats will be up for re-election. We are organizing now to elect responsible board members that share our values; board members who are effective, who use data to drive their decisions, who seek input from the community, and who represent all students and families.
