Superintendent's Message

Dear Friend,
Thank you for visiting the Web site of the Rising Star Independent School District.  Our site will provide the convenience of staying "on top" of school happenings.  I invite you to visit this site often and share in our excitement at RSISD.
I am fortunate to be the superintendent in a community that values public education.  The quality of the school district is complemented by a community partnership.  Without a doubt, Rising Star is an excellent community in which to raise a family!
Our staff has strong commitment to student achievement and excellence in academics.  Our varied curricular offerings throughout a student's elementary, middle, and high school years enables our students to prepare for future success.  From academic and extracurricular opportunities in areas such as music, agriculture, robotics, debate, sports, art, welding, and college classes, our students are provided many options for success.
Rising Star's reputation as an outstanding school district is well established.  As a TEA Recognized school district, our students, faculty, guardians, school board, and community members work together to make success a reality.  
Presently, Rising Star Elementary has again been recognized by the Texas Business and Education Coalition and is nominated by the Texas Commissioner of Education of the Texas Education Agency  to the United States Department of Education for Blue Ribbon Recognition, while our secondary school has students who have earned honors in regional, state and national contests in FFA, speaking, and band.
Thank you again for your interest in the Rising Star Independent School District.

School Changes Due to COVID 19

To: Community of Rising Star Subject: School Changes Due to COVID 19 From: Rising Star ISD Administration The continued uncertainty of the recent COVID outbreak has the entire country at odds about daily activities. Rising Star ISD will continue to operate for the remainder of the year as it is now. There are no more holidays or breaks in instruction days until the school year ends on May 21. Any changes that may be needed will be communicated to the parents and community. Students are expected to perform the tasks that teachers ask them to do online and in packets sent home. It is important that these tasks are done to receive credit for coursework. We are expecting to be in school next August with all students attending. We look forward to a successful 20-21 WILDCAT experience. You may reach administration by phone (254-643-1981), HS (254-643-3521), ELEM (254-643-2431). Please stay in contact and help to address any issues with student learning. Students aged 18 and below may pick up breakfast and lunch at the elementary school daily between 9:30 AM and 11:30 AM. The students must be present to get the meals. Please stay in your car when coming to receive the meals. We must all practice the usual means of stopping the spread of infectious diseases. Hand washing, avoiding large gatherings, omit touching others, and general good sense in preventing transmission of germs. Thank you for your cooperation and support.
