Support Neighborhood Schools in RISD
If you would like to see RISD develop a strategic plan to support smaller neighborhood schools that are integrated with their communities please sign this petition.
Ideally the goal of the neighborhood school strategy would target 4 class sections per grade level and the school would be within a short walking distance of your home. There would be sufficient green space for all of our children as well as community activities. This would translate into K-6 elementary schools with a targeted enrollment of ~ 664 students.
This petition would also directly oppose elementary schools with more than 1,000 students and any expansion request that takes an elementary school over 1,000 students.
