Top Rating Earned for Financial Transparency 3/17/15
RISD has again earned the highest possible rating from the Texas Comptroller for financial transparency after receiving Platinum Leadership Circle recognition. The state program seeks to recognize public entities such as local governments and school districts that are committed to financial transparency by making a wide range of information easily available and accessible to the public. 2015 marks the fifth consecutive year that RISD has earned the highest level of recognition available.

Snow Makeup Days 
Per RISD's 2014-15 Student Academic Calendar, the two snow makeup days will be Friday, April 3 and Friday, June 5. RISD will be submitting a waiver to TEA so students will not have to make up the third instructional day missed this year due to inclement weather.

RISD Growth Expected to Continue 
At its January 12 meeting, RISD Trustees heard the annual demographic update from Templeton Demographics. The update examines demographic, enrollment and population growth trends, along with economic and real estate data to project future district and school enrollment patterns.

Among the highlights, RISD's growth is expected to continue at a moderate rate, primarily due to turnover in single family households as young families continue to move into the district.

With multi-family housing rents at an all-time high, the district's economically disadvantaged student population is continuing to decline.
