RISD Considering 2015-16 Calendar 
Richardson ISD is currently considering a proposed 2015-16 Student Academic Calendar and is soliciting stakeholder feedback.

The proposed 2015-16 calendar is very similar to the current 2014-15 calendar and includes a week each for Thanksgiving and Spring breaks, and two weeks for Winter Break. The 2015-16 school year would begin on August 24, 2015 and end on June 2, 2016. If needed, the first snow make up day would be April 29 and the second would be March 25.

View the proposed calendar draft.

Provide feedback on the proposed calendar via a brief survey.

 
 

Holburn Announces Resignation 
RISD Board of Trustees President Karen Holburn announced her resignation at Monday's meeting.

"I am resigning from the RISD Board of Trustees effective December 8," said Mrs. Holburn. "For employment reasons, our family is moving out of the district. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in RISD and service to our students and staff. I appreciate the opportunity to serve RISD and am honored to have done so, through both the PTA and Board of Trustees, for the last 17 years. The district is in excellent condition and I am very confident in our leadership and direction. I am proud of our students, teachers, and staff members, and wish you well on your journey to even greater heights."

The remaining Board members took action to formally accept Mrs. Holburn's resignation. Board Vice President Kim Caston was selected by trustees to serve as president, and Adam Meierhofer will now serve as vice president. Trustee Place 6 will be vacant until May of 2015, when a special election will be held to elect a trustee to serve out the unexpired portion of Mrs. Holburn's three year term, through May of 2016. The special election will be held concurrently with RISD's regular trustee election for Places 1 & 2.

 
 

Board Hears Audit Report – RISD in Strong Financial Condition 11/18/14
At its November regular meeting, the RISD Board voted to approve the required annual audit of fiscal accounts performed by a certified outside auditing firm. Mr. Dan Tonn, CPA, with the firm Hankins, Eastup, Deaton, Tonn & Seay, reported that the audit of RISD accounts for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2014 was unqualified, meaning no accounting problems were identified. Mr. Tonn further shared with trustees that, based on its conservative fiscal practices, RISD "continues to be in excellent financial condition."
