Board Adopts 2018-19 Calendar
At its January 22 Work Session, the RISD Board of Trustees adopted Option B as RISD's 2018-2019 Student Academic Calendar. The Board heard feedback from several hundred parents, staff members and stakeholders about the calendar options, and Option B was supported by approximately 60 percent.

The calendar includes a start date of August 20, 2018 and will conclude on May 29, 2019. The Winter Break will extend until January 8, 2019 as one way lessen the imbalance between the number of days in each semester.

Option A, with earlier start and end dates, was again recognized as a better academic option due to providing an adequate and balanced number of instructional days in the first semester. However, concerns about a lack of advance planning time for extra-curricular activities if the school year began earlier was a factor in the choice of Option B. Planning for the 2019-2020 calendar will begin earlier, and an earlier start to the school year will again be discussed.

Four early release days were added to the adopted calendar, on September 19, October 24, January 30 and April 3. On those days, students will be dismissed two hours early to provide teachers with curricular planning time.

RISD will offer additional child care options to families during the first week of January and on early release days.

#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.

#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.
