The reasons we choose the school district our children attend is difficult to quantify, but the results of our choices are evident from data. We’ve created a snapshot of the students and teachers that make up Richardson ISD, based on data from the Texas Education Agency’s 2017-2018 Texas Academic Performance Report.

 

 

What is ACE?

Richardson ISD announced their plans to implement Accelerating Campus Excellence in 2018. The program provides additional services to Carolyn Bukhair Elementary, Forest Lane Academy, RISD Academy and Thurgood Marshall Elementary. The high-poverty, low-performing elementary schools have before- and after-school activities, tutoring, three meals per day and uniforms. All staff, including principals and teachers, reapplied for their positions or were moved to another Richardson ISD school. ACE launched during the 2018-2019 school year.
