Richland Two Black Parents Association  

Is an advocacy organization of black parents, teachers and students of Richland School  District Two.  The Richland Two Black Parents Association seeks to help parents stay abreast of important school policies that fundamentally impact our children and community.


RTBPA has three specific goals:

  • Serve as a voice for parents where students are unfairly targeted for for expulsions and suspension.
  • Maintain a community presence for policies and information critical to decision making and to the education attainment of our children.
  • Organize, educate, and mobilize parents to take active roles in promoting school improvements in their communities.


Recently the organizing Committee met and identified five core areas that parents highlighted as significant concerns wiithin Richland School District Two. 

 

School Governance and Operations

 Example: Who runs the School District and the responsibility of the Elected Board?

  

Budgets and Procurement

Example:  How is revenue collected? How is revenue spent? Who does the District do business with?

 

 Education and Curricula

Example:  Gifted and Talented Programs, IEP's, Scholarships, Standardized Testing?

 

Personnel and Human Resources

 Example:  Who hires teachers and other staff?

 

Discipline

 Example:  Number of African American Children suspended and/or expelled

 
PARENTS
, WE ARE ASKING YOU TO PLEASE CHOOSE A COMMITTEE TO SERVE ON.  YOU MAY CHOOSE MORE THAN ONE COMMITTEE. HOWEVER, IF THERE IS OVER REPRESENTATION IN ONE AREA, WE MAY ASK YOU TO CONSIDER YOUR SECOND OPTION. 

 

 Please know that this list is not a final list but a quick snapshot of what you as parents have expressed great concern over. From each Committee, there will be objectives identified as well as recommendations that will be developed into an action plan.
