At-Home Learning

Summer Online Learning
The RISD Teaching and Learning Department has developed optional task boards for grades KG-8 that parents and students can use to continue learning from home over the summer. The task boards cover high-priority standards in core subjects. Additional task boards will be posted throughout the summer. Let's keep learning, RISD!

Summer Reading

Summer Reading
All RISD students are encouraged to read books of interest to them during the summer. Students will share and discuss their reading when they return to school. As a district focused on building a culture of reading, we encourage all parents, staff, and stakeholders to join students in actively reading and discussing their reading.

Is Your Child Enrolled For Next Year?
The deadline to enroll as a returning student for the 2020-21 school year is Wednesday, June 3. Parents who intend for their child to return to RISD next school year should complete the enrollment process as soon as possible if they have not already done so.

Snapcodes for currently enrolled students can be used until June 3. After June 3, families who have not completed 2020-21 enrollment will be required to enroll as new students. If your student is not returning for the 2020-21 school year, please notify your child's school.

If you have begun the enrollment process and require assistance with submitting required documents, please notify your child's school, or bring the required documents to 420 S. Greenville Avenue between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays through June 3.

Seeking Nominations for Bond Steering Committee
RISD is seeking nominations for individuals to serve on the Bond Steering Committee (BSC). Members of the BSC will study the facility and programmatic needs of the school district and ultimately present a recommendation to the Board of Trustees for consideration of the district’s next bond program.

Obtaining different perspectives from the entire community is very important to the process and the district is seeking nominees who represent a variety of interests. Meetings are currently scheduled to be held in the evenings, August through December. If you or someone you know would be a valuable member of this committee, please complete this nomination form by June 1.

Grade Configuration Committee Recommends Middle School Model for RISD
At the May 4 RISD Board meeting, a committee of parents, community members and staff recommended that RISD join 95% of Texas school districts that use a middle school grade configuration. The recommendation came as a continuation of the strategic planning process, and proposes that RISD 6th graders eventually move to junior highs to create a middle school (grades 6-8) model.

The RISD Facilities strategic action team recommended in 2017 that the idea be studied, and a grade configuration committee was formed from the RISD Student Learning Design and Facilities action teams to study the pros and cons, which has been occurring since last fall. Dr. Stone informed parents and community members in November 2019 at the outset of the process.

Community members presented their findings and recommendation to trustees and Dr. Stone, with highlights including:

  • RISD is among the less than 5 percent of Texas school districts that still utilizes a 7-8 grade configuration.
  • The State of Texas curriculum (TEKS) is written for grade bands of K-5, 6-8, and 9-12.
  • Moving 6th graders to a junior high setting would provide more academic, fine arts and athletics opportunities and options.
  • As RISD works to comply with state requirements to offer full day Pre-K to all qualifying families and eventually offer full day Pre-K to all RISD families, a middle school model would be more fiscally efficient as classroom construction would be required at eight current junior high campuses instead of dozens of elementary campuses.
  • The transition to a middle school model would be phased in over a period of years.

Next steps include an opportunity for broader community feedback. Parents and community members are encouraged to learn more about the middle school model proposal by visiting the website www.risd.org/middleschoolmodel, which includes a way to ask questions and offer feedback via RISD’s new Let’s Talk feature.

If the recommendation eventually moves forward, a comprehensive phase-in plan would be developed, and funding for additional classroom construction and associated space would be included in RISD’s next bond package, potentially in 2021.

Census Extended to August 14
Richardson ISD is providing information to educate, encourage and engage our school community about the 2020 Census, and we encourage your participation.

The Census Bureau has extended the deadline to respond to the questionnaire to August 14. RISD will keep its Census website up through the extension.

The Census has only 10 questions and is available in 13 languages other than English. And, for the first time, you can respond by mail, phone or online. By responding to the 2020 Census now, you will have done your part to ensure your community gets its fair share of federal funding and representation in Congress.
