  • Clusters are coming for 2nd - 6th grades, students will choose their top 3 choices this week. These are a great conversation for family time, ask your child(ren) what clusters they are interested in and what they do when they go to clusters. Remember clusters are career focused.

Dear RISD Parent,

Every parent has a voice in Richardson ISD’s ongoing pursuit of excellence for students. Today I am asking for your feedback about the individual school your child attends. Please share your thoughts about critical school issues such as academic preparation, student support, parent engagement, safety and behavior, special programs, school and district operations, and school leadership.

This survey will take approximately 20-25 minutes to complete. All answers are strictly confidential, so please feel free to respond honestly. Survey responses will never be used to identify individuals. After the survey closes, we will report the aggregate findings to our Board of Trustees and the RISD community.

If you have students at multiple schools and would like to complete the survey for each child, you may use the same survey link to complete the survey again.

Thank you for your time and thoughtful participation. Engaging in an ongoing two-way dialogue is critical as we work together to provide our students with an education that challenges them and appropriately meets their needs.

Thank you for taking the time to participate.

Estimados padres del RISD:

Todos los padres tienen una voz en la búsqueda continua de la excelencia de sus hijos en el Distrito Escolar Independiente de Richardson (RISD). Hoy, les pido que brinden su opinión sobre su experiencia con la escuela de su hijo(a). Les pedimos que compartan con nosotros sus opiniones sobre aspectos críticos tales como la preparación académica, el apoyo al alumno, la participación de los padres, los programas especiales, las operaciones de la escuela y del distrito, y los líderes de la escuela.

Podrá completar esta encuesta en aproximadamente 20 a 25 minutos. Todas las respuestas son estrictamente confidenciales, por lo tanto, no duden en responder con sinceridad. Las respuestas de esta encuesta nunca se utilizarán para revelar la identidad de las personas. Después de que la encuesta se cierre, informaremos sobre los resultados a nivel global a nuestra Junta de Directivos y a la comunidad del RISD.

Si usted tiene estudiantes en varias escuelas y desea completar una encuesta por cada niño, es posible utilizar el mismo enlace de la encuesta para completar la encuesta de nuevo.

Participar en un diálogo continuo y bidireccional es fundamental a medida que trabajamos juntos para brindar a nuestros alumnos una educación que los desafíe y que satisfaga de forma adecuada sus necesidades.

Gracias por tomarse el tiempo necesario para participar.
