2011-12 Budget Approved
On June 20, the RISD Board of Trustees approved the 2011-12 budget recommended by Dr. Kay Waggoner. The district based its 2011-12 operating budget of $246,493,527 on a projected $20 million reduction in state funding. The RISD Board also adopted the tax rate of $1.34 – which remains unchanged since level in 2007-08.

Since the fall 2010, the RISD Board and Administration have engaged stakeholders in the budget planning process and have proposed several budget reductions scenarios, based on the state's $4 billion reduction to public education funding. At this time, the Legislature is still debating a school finance plan in special session.
