Dear Rock Terrace School Families,
Our school has a commitment to fostering learning environments in which all students, families and staff feel a sense of belonging. Recognizing the racial disparities that have persisted in how students experience school and access opportunities, Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) worked collaboratively with the Mid-Atlantic Equity Consortium (MAEC) to examine policies, practices and structures that must change to ensure schools create the conditions for all students to thrive.
Over 130,000 students, staff and families shared insights over the course of two years. Our school has been analyzing the survey results from our own students, staff and families. The full results will be posted to our school website
https://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/schools/rockterrace/ on May 26, 2023. We are writing to summarize our survey results so that we can work together with families to gain deeper insights about what our data mean for actions we must take to continuously improve. We studied the specific results where we saw the most significant differences in the experiences of students, staff and families by racial group. A summary of our work is included below.
We look forward to continuing to engage with families as partners in designing and monitoring a school improvement plan that includes actions we will take as a result of our data. We are confident that by working together we can increase our students’ access to opportunities and ensure that all students, staff and families experience a sense of belonging in our school community.
