Before COVID-19, Royal was 75% one-to-one technology, meaning that RISD had supplied 75% of Falcons with a device for learning purposes. This allowed RISD to quickly bring that number to 100%. Thank you to our superhero Technology Team for helping our Falcons soar every day!

Quote of the week: “The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Good morning, Falcons! As we head into the final week of Early Voting, we wanted to provide you with an answer to the following question: "Why does the language on the ballot state that there will be a tax increase when RISD leadership has stated that there will not be one?" The statement in the ballot language is misleading. In 2019, the Texas Legislature passed legislation requiring the ballots for all school bond elections to include a sentence that states “THIS IS A PROPERTY TAX INCREASE.” The sentence is required even if no actual tax rate increase will occur. Visit https://5il.co/ldu9 to view the ballot language in Spanish and English. Royal Bond 2020 will NOT result in an increase to the tax rate, regardless of the outcome of the bond election. Together, the proposals total of $37,302,581. No increase in the total tax rate is anticipated to pay off the bonds associated with the three propositions. Have additional questions about Royal Bond 2020? Our team is committed to full transparency and is available to answer your questions! Call 281-934-2248 and ask for Christi Ginn, email Christi Ginn (firstname.lastname@example.org), and/or email Superintendent Rick Kershner (email@example.com). Go Falcons!
