Conroy To Lead EiE Foundation
Maria Conroy photo The RISD Excellence in Education Foundation is proud to announce Maria Conroy as its new executive director. Conroy began her new role earlier this month, taking over for Elizabeth Hart, who retired in July.

"I am so happy to be working with the EiE Foundation to benefit the students and teachers of Richardson ISD," said Conroy. "This is where I began my career as a Texas teacher and I owe much to RISD and the Richardson community for all of the opportunities for growth that I received.”

#RisdGoVote
As the all-important Texas primary elections approach on March 6, it is critical that RISD stakeholders engage in the voting process. Waiting until the general election in November to learn about legislative candidates and issues is often too late to make a difference. Primary elections in Texas almost always decide the elected legislators who will make the decisions that directly impact RISD on topics like school funding, accountability & the STAAR test, private school vouchers, and more.

Because a very small number of Texans typically vote in primary elections, it means a very small number of people are choosing who makes the decisions that impact every Texan.

#RisdGoVote is a new website designed to provide parents, staff, students, taxpayers and other stakeholders with information about voting, elections, candidates and issues that impact the district and public education. Don't let another Texas primary election come and go without your voice being heard.

How Are We Doing?

Weather Reminder - Can RISD Reach You?
The cold weather has arrived, and with it the possibility for cancellation or delay of school due to inclement weather. Please ensure your child's school has the most up-to-date phone number and email address in order to reach you quickly if needed.

In the event of inclement weather, RISD will evaluate the forecast and actual conditions on roads and at school facilities to arrive at a decision to cancel or delay school. The district will communicate closure or delay decisions by 6:00 a.m. on school days if an announcement is not made the previous evening. RISD communicates closure or delay notifications in the following ways:

  • Direct phone call, email & text message to parents and staff members
  • Notice on district homepage at risd.org
  • School Times electronic newsletter
  • District Facebook and Twitter posts
  • Alert local news media outlets

Parents, staff and students should assume school will be open on a normal schedule unless they are notified otherwise by RISD. The district does not send notifications stating that school is open or operating on a normal schedule.
