2017 Strategic Plan
strategic plan graphic On October 2, district trustees voted to adopt a revised RISD strategic plan, and stakeholders are encouraged to take part in the process by applying to be on one of the six action teams that will develop the specific steps and goals to support the six district strategies:

  • We will ensure that we have diverse and engaging programs and learning opportunities to meet the unique needs of all our students.
  • We will guarantee that all students will perform at or above grade level.
  • We will recruit, retain, and reward quality personnel.
  • We will ensure that ALL families, businesses, and community partners are fully engaged in the mission of our district.
  • We will actively pursue creative funding sources and responsibly manage current resources to support our mission.
  • We will ensure that our facilities and infrastructure adapt to support our mission.
Once formed, action teams will meet from October - March and bring their work back to the Strategic Planning Design Team and Board of Trustees in the Spring.

Staff Spotlight
photo of Henry Vo Henry Vo, in his 10th year as a teacher with RISD, was recently awarded the Tech Titan Of The Future Award from Tech Titans / The Technology Association for North Texas.

The award aims to recognize a high school math or science teacher for the development and implementation of innovative teaching techniques that inspire student interest in the math/science field. Vo has been dedicated to helping his students at Richardson High School achieve success in the ever-growing area of computer science.

His hard work and inspiring nature has in turn paid off for his students, many of whom have gone on to study STEM-related disciplines in college. The award of $5,000 will be used for additional equipment in his classroom, allowing his students to benefit and grow even more.
