Board Continues Bond Discussions

At its October 13 meeting, RISD trustees continued discussions assessing district needs and potential items for inclusion in a 2016 bond package.

Trustees and staff continue to work to narrow a list of possible items and requests from different departments, programs and schools in advance of efforts to present options to community stakeholders for feedback and ideas.

Potential items have been categorized in one of three ways: maintenance of infrastructure & equipment at the end of useful life; construction/renovations to accommodate enrollment growth; and items that would provide enrichment opportunities for RISD students.

RISD is finalizing a schedule of opportunities to meet with community, parent and employee groups in a listening tour about 2016 bond ideas.

The Board also previewed a video highlighting the work completed in the 2011 bond.
