A committee of Richardson ISD parents and staff have prepared two calendar options for the 2021-2022 student academic calendar.

The calendar options weigh factors such as COVID protocols, academics and instruction, safety, impact on families, balance between semesters and placement of teacher development days.

For option Option A, the school year begins on Wednesday, Aug. 18 and concludes on Friday, May 27.

For Option B, the school year begins on Tuesday, Aug. 17 and concludes on Friday, May 27. Monday, Nov. 1 would be a student and staff holiday.

To offer feedback on the calendars, community members can email risd@risd.org or call at 469-593-0301.

The RISD board of trustees expects to vote on the 2021-22 calendar at its March meeting.
