Class Size Waiver Request 10/7/14
At its October 6 meeting, the RISD Board of Trustees authorized the district to seek a class size waiver from the state of Texas. For 2014, RISD is exceeding the state's K-4 class size limit of 22 students in a single classroom at one school. After hiring additional teachers and constructing new classrooms over the last three years in response to enrollment growth, RISD's number of class size waivers has fallen significantly, from a high of 291 waivers in 2012.
