From Superintendent Kay Waggoner
As we close out activity from Bond 2011, on behalf of the students and staff of Richardson ISD, I'd like to take a moment to express gratitude for your support of the last bond package and for your ongoing support of the district. Your votes were expressions of confidence in RISD, and over the last five years we have striven to honor your investment with transparency and accountability in the work performed.

Bond 2011 improved all 55 campuses in the district with technology projects, and we reached more than 40 RISD facilities with infrastructure upgrades and/or repairs. Our extracurricular programs benefitted from equipment replacements and safety improvements, while behind-the-scenes efforts such as HVAC and plumbing provided safe, comfortable and functional learning environments for our 38,600 students and approximately 5,000 employees.

I trust you have had a chance to see a RISD facility as you go about your daily business, but if you haven't, please join us this school year for a fine arts performance or athletic event, or even a quick tour at Meet-the-Teacher Night. I hope you will enjoy seeing our children shine and feel pride in their safe, comfortable learning environments.

If you have questions about work resulting from Bond 2011 or thoughts about future bond projects, please email risd@risd.org.

Note: Funding for the proposed RISD 2011 bond program, if approved, will come from the sale of general obligation bonds. These bonds, in school districts, are intended to furnish and equip school buildings and programs. The proposed items in the program draft reflect the items that RISD expects to address in the 2011 bond program. However, under the governing rules, the proposed budget amount assigned to anticipated projects is an estimate and may vary or be redistributed based upon need.
