RISD Not Offering 2021-22 Virtual Option

The Texas legislative session has concluded, and the legislation that would have authorized state funding and support for school districts like RISD to offer a fully virtual school was not approved.

The Texas Education Agency has informed school districts that it is no longer planning to launch the program that would have worked in support of school districts offering a virtual option, and will not be offering a waiver for school districts to offer remote learning as was done last year.

This means that RISD will not be offering a virtual K-8 school of choice to families for the 2021-22 school year. The district would like to partner with our families who were looking forward to a remote learning opportunity, and encourages parents to visit with their school principal to discuss potential in-person options and strategies that may meet individual student needs.

RISD continues to plan for a 2021-22 school year that will offer comprehensive, engaging, and enriching instructional opportunities for all face to face learners.

Families that have not yet enrolled for the 2021-22 school year may do so by visiting www.risd.org/enrollment.
