The Regular Meeting of Royse City ISD Board of Trustees

May 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Regular Meeting of Royse City ISD Board of Trustees is Monday, May 13, 2019 at 7 PM, Earnest Epps Education Center, Old Greenville Rd, Royse City.

Superintendent Kevin Worthy and the Board will address the recent incident regarding a student wearing an iconic symbol of racism and hate as a cape in the halls during the school day, the complaints which followed and the actions the district is prepared to take.

Rockwall County Democratic Party Chair has been in conversation with Superintendent Kevin Worthy and RCHS Principal Sean Walker about this incident.

The Democratic Party Platform Section on Education make clear that the Party is an advocate cation for a strong public education, curriculum standards that uphold the integrity and reliability of science and social studies, including History. And it calls for enforcement of disciplinary standards, intervention and mediation to address acts of violence, bullying and cyber-bully.

We call on the Board of Trustees to act to institute awareness and sensitivity training for school staff and students:
To address ethnocentrism and xenophobia which underly a student’s action, staff response and the parental complaint. To review the curriculum and to institute the highest standards of studies grounded in reliable, accurate depictions of the history of this country, and studies in cultural diversity thereby insuring the graduates of Royse City Schools a world class education enabling them to succeed in a country of diverse cultures and work environments.

The trustees meet in Executive Session at 5:45pm and convenes in open meeting of the Board of Trustees at 7pm.

This can be an opportunity for growth in diversity awareness for Royse City ISD and the Community they serve.
