District To Implement ACE Program
 
Four RISD schools, Carolyn Bukhair Elementary, Forest Lane Academy, RISD Academy, and Thurgood Marshall Elementary, will be implementing the Accelerating Campus Excellence (ACE) program for the 2018-19 school year. The ACE program utilizes a model that is working successfully in Dallas and Fort Worth ISDs to provide an educational environment in which students at high-poverty schools can achieve consistent academic success.

Under the ACE model, many barriers to student learning are removed, and academic, social/emotional, nutritional and support needs are met. The school day at ACE campuses will be extended, as will before- and after-school programming hours. Students will be provided with uniforms, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Tutoring and academic support will be built into daily and weekly schedules.

A major component of the ACE model is a process referred to as reconstitution. The reconstitution process means that all 2018-19 professional and paraprofessional positions at each of the four schools will be reopened. The ACE model will incentivize educators with a demonstrated track record of student growth to come to an ACE campus. Current staff members (who meet performance standards) not returning to work under the ACE model next year will be welcomed at a different RISD campus.

For more information about the ACE program implementation in RISD, watch the March 5 presentation to RISD trustees.
