  1. Child's Birth Certificate
  2. Child's Social Security Card* (Optional. RISD uses a student’s social security number for submissions under the Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS). If a parent chooses not to provide a social security number, RISD will assign a state-approved identifier.)
  3. Child's Complete Immunization Records(date, month and year of every immunization received)
  4. Proof of Residency (water, electric or gas bill for homeowners or apartment lease with the parent's name and address clearly visible)
  5. Parents/Guardian ID (driver's license, state issued ID or Passport)

For complete information and documentation options for enrollment and registration, please review the RISD Student/Parent Guidebook.

Richardson ISD recommends that families register their students as soon as enrollment opens. Every school has limited capacity at each grade. Waiting to register may result in a child not being able to attend their neighborhood school and being assigned to another school through the Overflow Office. For more information, visit the RISD enrollment page at clicking here.

Questions: If you have questions regarding immunization, please email Nurse Patty Bressler at 469-593-4250 or patty.bressler@risd.org.

If you have enrollment questions, please contact Mrs. Kirby Cord at 469-593-4252 or kirby.cord@risd.org.
