RISD Growth Expected to Continue 
At its January 12 meeting, RISD Trustees heard the annual demographic update from Templeton Demographics. The update examines demographic, enrollment and population growth trends, along with economic and real estate data to project future district and school enrollment patterns.

Among the highlights, RISD's growth is expected to continue at a moderate rate, primarily due to turnover in single family households as young families continue to move into the district.

With multi-family housing rents at an all-time high, the district's economically disadvantaged student population is continuing to decline.

Weather Notification Reminder 
Safety of our students and staff is a priority if bad weather is predicted or occurs during the school day. Several RISD departments (transportation, facilities, grounds) stand ready to assess the condition of the roads and school facilities should ice and/or snow make travel to or from RISD schools hazardous. Based on their assessment of the road conditions and consultation with surrounding districts, RISD's Superintendent will determine if schools in Richardson ISD will be delayed or closed for the safety of students and staff.

In the event of inclement weather that may require classes be delayed or cancelled, parents and employees will be notified by telephone message, email and text message before 6:30 a.m.

In addition, patrons can check the RISD homepage at risd.org, the district Facebook page at facebook.com/richardsonisd or the district Twitter feed at twitter.com/richardsonisd. The district also notifies local media outlets of closures or delays.

Parents are reminded to ensure their child's school is up to date with a current telephone number and email address.
