The RGV FOCUS Annual and Community Reports include information about cross-sector collaboration in the Rio Grande Valley, statistics on adult and student populations, student success data compared to the State of Texas, and highlights from districts, institutions of higher education and community-based organization partners.
You can also click here to view our Equity Framework as part of our overall Pre-K-12 Data Dashboard. RGV FOCUS adopts an Equity Framework as a continuum of approaches to address inequity in our region including income, language, race/ethnicity, and special education status. The Equity Framework helps identify achievement gaps among different demographic groups so that stakeholders can make data-informed decisions. We use the Equity Framework to identify and create approaches for benchmarking equitable learning goals and opportunities. The RGV FOCUS Leadership Team utilizes data across our region for research to infer strategies and reduce these gaps.
While we are certainly facing challenging times, our region is resilient and committed to overcoming barriers and making progress. RGV FOCUS is proud of our students’ success and educators’ innovation, and yet our work is far from over. We need everyone to renew their commitment of time, resources, and funding to ensure our students succeed. Never will that commitment be more important than going into the 2020-21 school year as we navigate the impact of the pandemic on our students and learning.
