The purpose of this post is to reach out to you for your help. Our plan as a District is to resume classes as normal on Monday, November 30th. Please email Mr. Head at or our school nurse Mrs. Aimee Martin at if any of the following questions apply to you.

Have you or your child tested positive for COVID during the break?
Is your family in quarantine and if so, when is your final day?
Are your COVID test results pending?

We need this information in order to continue classes as normal during these unusual times.

RISD hopes you all had a Happy Thanksgiving!

Moving towards normal in unusual times...

We have been busy planning and making difficult decisions about the 2020-2021 academic year.  The safety and education of students is the primary responsibility of a school district.  The current pandemic, has presented an abnormally complex situation in preparing for the safety of our students, staff, and families.  We appreciate your patience during this time.  Please read the information presented here to understand some important elements of our plans moving forward.

Let's Continue to Build Our Angora Team!

RISD is always accepting applications.
If you know of anyone that would be interested, please encourage them to apply. We, as a community, need to reach deep and wide to find candidates that are right for our students, teachers, families, and community. Resumes and applications can be sent any time to
There are often teaching positions that become available each year. Certified teachers, please consider how your talents could contribute to the growth of our Angoras! Help us find the most qualified educators to inspire our RISD students!
*It is preferable to place certified teachers in all Texas classrooms. However, as a District of Innovation, RISD has some flexibility in hiring. So, if you have a college degree and a love for teaching and making a difference in the lives of students, you too might be qualified to apply for professional positions.
