2016 Bond Planning - Feedback Requested

RISD trustees are continuing to evaluate potential items to include in the 2016 bond and public input is a critical part of the bond planning process.

RISD's 2016 Bond planning website includes information to learn about items under consideration and allows taxpayers, parents, employees and students to provide feedback and ideas online.

Public meetings are being held in each of RISD's four feeder patterns to present information about possible items for inclusion, solicit feedback, hear ideas and answer questions. Parents, residents and employees who are interested in the bond planning process are encouraged to attend.

  • November 30 - Pearce HS Corral - 6:30 p.m.
  • December 1 - Lake Highlands HS Auditorium - 6:30 p.m.
  • December 2 - Berkner HS Auditorium - 6:30 p.m.
  • December 8 - Richardson HS Black Box Theatre - 6:30 p.m.

2016-17 Student Academic Calendar

The district is currently considering a draft of the 2016-2017 Student Academic Calendar. The draft includes the first day of school on August 22, 2016, holiday breaks similar to the current year, and two snow make-up days. One change from the current year calendar would be a return of Spring Break to the third week of March. Barring weather make-up days, the school year would conclude on June 1, 2017.

Parent, staff and stakeholder feedback on the 2016-2017 Student Academic Calendar is requested prior to a Board vote in early 2016. Feedback or questions regarding the draft calendar can be shared with RISD Communications at risd@risd.org or 469-593-0301.
