Superintendent’s Update – October 14

Click here to watch the October 14 superintendent’s update. Dr. Stone talks about Dallas County’s change in risk level. Highlights include:

  • The county’s change in risk level will not impact RISD school activities.
  • RISD’s health and distancing protocols, coupled with contact tracing and quarantine efforts, have proven effective so far in limiting positive cases from becoming outbreaks.
  • Overall positive cases among all people residing in RISD’s zip codes remain lower than some other parts of Dallas County.
  • RISD is committed to transparency – stakeholders can view up to date data about positive cases in schools and RISD zip codes through the COVID-19 page.
  • Please continue to wear a mask and cooperate with other protocols that lower the risk of transmission.
  •  
Dr. Stone has provided weekly updates throughout the pandemic. Previous messages can be found here.

Berkner STEM Academy Receives TASA/TASB Stars of Distinction
The new STEM Center at Berkner High School has received four Stars of Distinction from the Texas Association of School Administrators/Texas Association of School Boards. The STEM Center received stars for value, community, planning, and school transformation, qualifying it for the Caudill Class distinction.

The Caudill Class is a design standard presented to districts and architects for projects that received at least four stars from the six areas of distinction.

The refurbished library at Pearce High School also will be included in the TASA/TASB 2020-21 Exhibit of School Architecture, which celebrates excellence in planning and design of the learning environment.

The STEM Academy includes an Immersion Studio that provides students with an unparalleled 21st century learning experience. Construction of the STEM Center and Immersion Studio was funded by RISD taxpayers through Bond 2016. The school district’s STEM for All initiative – which affects nearly 10,000 students across the 16 campuses in the Berkner learning community – was seeded with a grant from Texas Instruments.

Pearce's library renovation was also funded through the 2016 bond program and transformed the school's main entry into a modern, bright learning space with Mustang Market adjacent to the new media center. #RISDGreatness

A/B Calendar Available
Under the Blueprint, one of the changes for the 2020-21 school year includes all students in grades 7-12 following an A or B block schedule each day, with days alternating throughout the instructional year. Class periods have been extended to 90 minutes, and students will have half their classes on A days and the other half of their classes on B days, alternating each day. The RISD Student Academic Calendar has been updated to note each instructional day as an A or B day. Early in the week of August 17, schools will inform parents when specific schedules for each student are available.
