Richardson ISD Named a District of Distinction by the Texas Art Education Association


Richardson ISD has been named a 2022 District of Distinction by the Texas Art Education Association.

This honor places the district in the top four percent of school districts in the state for arts education.

“The Richardson Independent School District has set high standards for championing the visual arts, integrating the visual arts curriculum, encouraging creativity, community involvement, and student growth,” said said Sandra Newton, president of TAEA’s administration and oversight division, in a prepared statement. “It’s a true testament to [RISD’s] the skills, dedication and flexibility of visual arts educators that the quality of their programs continued to provide students with solid and comprehensive visual arts educational experiences.

More than 1,200 school districts in the state were eligible to apply for recognition and only 59 obtained it.

Richardson ISD has met or exceeded the criteria in 14 categories used by the association. These categories include membership, exhibitions and competitions, as well as community engagement in the visual arts through field experiences, community service and collaboration with other content areas, according to an announcement.
