Equity and Innovation Taskforce
The New Mexico Public Education Department established the Equity Council requirement for all schools in the state to ensure that the important work of the Yazzie - Martinez Lawsuit was carried out by the experts at the local level. The Raton Public Schools Equity and Innovation Task Force is a great opportunity for us to come together as a community to learn, coordinate, and take action steps to support our students and prepare them for the future. The Task Force is an invaluable initiative where we need a committed group of individuals from around our community to participate, collaborate, and take actions to improve outcomes for students.
INFORMATION CONCERNING GRADUATE PROFILES (from November 29, 2021 meeting)
What is a Graduate Profile?
Graduate Profiles are a way to focus our community on a core set of learning goals, goals that support the development of skills and habits of mind that matter in our district and beyond. Especially for our schools as we work to prioritize mastery and personalization, a Graduate Profile helps clarify what we want students to master and why we are committing to personalized pathways that ensure all students reach mastery at all levels. At our meeting on Monday we will be working with high school students and anyone who can join us at any time to go through the process of "theming".
Below you will find data from our students, parents, and families on specific questions we asked to obtain feedback about our district as we move to improve it. Please take some time to review the data.
This also ties into our collective agreement work from our last PLC session. Values and goals we as a district will commit to in order to help our students be successful at all levels. This Wednesday, we will continue our collective agreement work. As we work through the process, it is an opportunity for us to reflect on ourselves as educators and what and how we contribute to the district and the collective agreements we make to one another. The process will not be successful unless we step back and focus on ourselves first and not what is wrong with everyone else. You as well as I want our district to be the best it can be. Let's start now!
