What We Do
Diversity, Equity & Outreach

The Department of Diversity, Equity & Outreach at Rapid City Area Schools is committed to creating safe and inclusive environments where all students, families, and staff feel welcomed and celebrated for who they are.  We recognize that diversity within our community and schools has changed throughout the years and the Rapid City area has even greater racial, ethnic, cultural, religious, and economic diversity projected to come.  With the combination of our Title VI- Indian Education program, Whole Child Initiative, and district-wide social workers we strive to continue to provide services so that all of our students can succeed without barriers to their education.
