Richardson ISD is requesting feedback on two options for the 2020-2021 school year calendar.

In both cases, the school year would begin Aug. 19, 2020, and end May 28, 2021, but the question is: what day should the second semester start on?

RISD wants help in deciding whether to begin the spring semester on Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2021 (option A) or Monday, Jan. 4, 2012 (option B). In option A, the Monday before the first day of school would be used as a staff development day for teachers. With option B, the staff development day would fall on Jan. 19, 2021, the day after Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which is a school holiday.

The calendar for the 2019-2020 school year has already been decided on and can be viewed online here.

Feedback will be shared with RISD’s Board of Trustees at its May 20 meeting.

To provide feedback, email or call 469-593-0000.
