A committee of RISD parents and staff members prepared two calendar options for the 2021-2022 student academic calendar. In addition to weighing COVID protocols, academics and instruction, safety, impact on families, a balance between semesters, and placement of teacher development days were among many factors considered by committee members. Both options comply with state requirements.
Under Option A, the school year would begin Wednesday, Aug. 18, and conclude on Friday, May 27, 2022. View calendar Option A.
Under Option B, the year would start Tuesday, Aug. 17, and conclude on Friday, May 27, 2022. Monday, Nov. 1, would be a student and staff holiday if RISD chooses Option B. View calendar Option B.
Feedback about the calendar options is welcome at Let’s Talk! or at 469-593-0301. The RISD board is expected to vote on the 2021-2022 academic calendar at its March meeting.
