Equity at River Trails School District 26

Our district defines equity as giving everyone what they need to be successful, unlike equality where everyone gets the same.

District Equity Audit

During the 2020-2021 school year, River Trails School District 26 engaged in an equity audit. An equity audit is a proactive opportunity to critically examine systemic equity movement. The purpose of the equity audit is to clearly identify areas of strength, and especially recognize needed improvement to advance equity.

The audit was conducted by Dr. Ivette Dubiel. Dr. Dubiel is the CEO of Systemic Educational Equity, LLC, a full-service diversity, equity and inclusion equity firm. The audit was completed in cooperation with members of the RTSD26 Board of Education, administration, staff, students and parents.
