RISD administrators, principals and school board members have been working to craft a proposal for a possible May 2011 bond election, and they’re seeking input from RISD “stakeholders” – taxpayers, parents, teachers and graduates. They’ve posted an online Bond Program opinion survey, available by clicking here then clicking the blue box.

In a bond workshop Nov. 4, Superintendent Dr. Kay Waggoner expressed her desire to limit the bond total to approximately $170 to avoid a tax rate increase. The decision to hold a bond election and discussions about what the bond program might include will continue, but the RISD board must vote by March 2011 if it wants to call an election in May.

If you’d like to have a voice in the process, you can email RISD communications folks here.
