Stone Formally Named Superintendent 1/10/17
Photo of Jeannie Stone RISD Trustees last evening voted to formally name Dr. Jeannie Stone as RISD Superintendent. Stone was named RISD's Lone Finalist on December 12.

"I am honored and humbled to be selected to serve this district," said Stone. “You have my commitment that I will lead this district with my whole heart and soul."

Stone joined RISD in 2015 as Deputy Superintendent over Curriculum and Instruction. She became Acting Superintendent in April 2016 when former superintendent Dr. Kay Waggoner took a leave of absence, and was named Interim Superintendent in June 2016 when Dr. Waggoner announced her retirement.

Stone holds a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Texas at Arlington, a master's degree in Education from Texas A&M Commerce, and earned her doctorate in Educational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University. She has 26 years of experience in education, beginning as a middle school English teacher.

2017-18 Calendar - Final Feedback Requested 1/10/17
Based on parent and employee feedback to the previous calendar drafts, staff have proposed a single draft of the 2017-18 student academic calendar and are seeking additional feedback from stakeholders. Highlights include a start date of August 21 and end date of May 31. Feedback from parents was not supportive of a staff development day on Election Day in non-presidential election years. It will be a consideration for future calendars that include presidential election days.

Parent and teacher feedback also requested more balance between the number of instructional days in the two semesters and additional time for Winter Break in January. The calendar draft therefore reflects a winter break from December 21 - January 8, which is a change from the current year calendar. The second snow make-up day was moved to May 31 to accommodate the state testing calendar.

See the 2017-18 Calendar Draft

Feedback to the calendar draft is encouraged, and can be directed to risd@risd.org. The Board may vote on the 2017-18 calendar at their next meeting.

Photo of kris oliver At the January 9 Regular meeting, RISD Board of Trustee Place 3 member Kris Oliver announced he will resign in May.

"I am resigning so that my daughter can seek employment with the district upon graduation from college this Spring. I will continue to serve until a replacement is elected in May, and will do my best to ensure a smooth transition."

Oliver was first elected to the Board in 2010, and re-elected in 2016. The Board voted to accept Oliver's resignation.

A special election will be held on May 6 to fill the final two years of his unexpired term, along with the elections for the expiring terms of places 6 and 7, currently held by Justin Bono and Dr. Kristin Kuhne.

At its January 9 Regular meeting, the Board voted to approve the District of Innovation plan, formally allowing RISD some flexibility from some state requirements in different operational and instructional areas. The district cannot make changes to the approved plan without approval from the district DOI committee and the Board. The DOI plan will be reviewed annually by the RISD District of Innovation committee.
