Proposed Calendar Draft Updated - Feedback Requested 1/19/17
Based on ongoing parent and staff feedback into the process of drafting the 2017-18 Student Academic Calendar, additional changes to the calendar draft have been made, and RISD requests feedback from parents, staff and other stakeholders.

Highlights of the latest version include:

  • Start Date of August 21, 2017 - year ends on May 31, 2018.
  • With 2017 being a non-presidential election year, Election Day on Nov. 7 would be a normal instructional day. In presidential election years, Election Day will be considered for a staff development day.
  • A return to the traditional placement of Winter Break, with most days in December.
  • Due to the State of Texas testing calendar, Monday, April 2, 2018, will be a normal instructional day.
  • The first staff development day of 2018 would occur after the January 15 MLK Jr. holiday, which is early enough in the semester to be beneficial, but avoids a two day instructional week the first week back from Winter break.

See the updated 2017-18 Calendar Draft

Stakeholders are encouraged to provide feedback to risd@risd.org. The RISD Board of Trustees is expected to formally approve the 2017-18 Student Academic Calendar in February.

Stone joined RISD in 2015 as Deputy Superintendent over Curriculum and Instruction. She became Acting Superintendent in April 2016 when former superintendent Dr. Kay Waggoner took a leave of absence, and was named Interim Superintendent in June 2016 when Dr. Waggoner announced her retirement.

Stone holds a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Texas at Arlington, a master's degree in Education from Texas A&M Commerce, and earned her doctorate in Educational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University. She has 26 years of experience in education, beginning as a middle school English teacher.
