Water splashing

Drinking Water in RISD
Recently, the State of Texas received an “F” from an environmental group for not doing enough to ensure drinking water in schools is safe from lead contamination.

RISD parents and staff should know that all fountains and fixtures dispensing drinking water in RISD buildings have been replaced during campus bond renovations that began in 2001. Fountains and fixtures are compliant with federal laws related to lead and safe drinking water. In 2016, RISD implemented a water sample testing program in schools to confirm that drinking water is safe, and all campuses tested through the program have passed EPA water quality standards for lead.

Thank you to the RISD community’s continued support of district bond programs for making safety upgrades like this possible for students, staff and visitors.

Federal Court Approves postponement of RISD Board Election
until November

On February 11, a U.S. District Court granted permission for Richardson ISD to postpone its 2019 Board of Trustees election—usually held in May—until the November 5, 2019 general election.

“This is the ruling we anticipated and our next step will be to finalize a transition plan to our new 5-2 electoral system by August 7,” said RISD Board President Justin Bono. "This ruling means that November’s Trustee election will be the first to implement the new electoral system and include certain single-member districts.”
