Thanks to Courtesy Nissan, Berkner HS senior Toan Tran won a new 2016 Nissan Sentra Thursday evening. One of 82 RISD seniors with perfect attendance this school year, Tran’s name was selected at random to win the new car through the attendance incentive program set up at the beginning of the school year by RISD partner Courtesy Nissan. As a result of his perfect attendance, Toan will have some new wheels as he starts at UT Dallas in the Fall.

Congratulations and thank you to Courtesy Nissan for supporting RISD.

Board Hears Initial Budget Recommendations 5/11/17
At their May 8 Work Session, RISD Trustees heard initial recommendations from staff related to the 2017-18 operating budget. The session continued a series of trustee meetings that began in January related to budget background and preparation. Major points of the meeting included:

  • Under the Texas school finance system, the dramatic increase in RISD property values is reducing the state funding received by RISD.
  • The rise in property values (over 10% this year) is outpacing RISD’s enrollment growth and having a negative impact on RISD operating funds.
  • The increased tax dollars being paid by RISD property owners due to rising property values are spent by the State of Texas on unrelated items and do not provide ongoing revenue to operate RISD.

Learn more about the initial recommendations

Initial 5th & 8th Grade STAAR Results Available 5/2/17
First administration results of the STAAR test in 5th & 8th grade math and reading have been released. RISD All Students scores exceeded the state on each assessment and achievement category. While having a higher percentage of limited English proficient students, RISD demographics otherwise closely reflect the demographics of Texas as a whole, making state comparisons a useful indicator.

In an effort to make the scores more understandable for parents, the Texas Education Agency has changed the categories of achievement this year. Performance for students on STAAR is now measured relative to grade level expectations, using the following descriptors:

  • Did not meet grade level expectations (student did not meet performance expectations - not passing)
  • Approaching grade level expectations (student on track to meet performance expectations - passing)
  • Meets grade level expectations (passing)
  • Masters grade level expectations (passing)

Under the state accountability system's Student Success Initiative (SSI), students in 5th & 8th grade are required to pass both math and reading assessments to advance to the next grade. Students who did not pass will have another opportunity to take the assessment May 8, and again over the summer, if needed. RISD provides additional assistance for students who do not pass STAAR math and reading in 5th & 8th grades.

STAAR and EOC results in other grade levels are expected to be available in mid-late June.
