The calculated initial cost to RISD of providing a set of textbooks for each child to keep at home exceeds $11 million, which is unfortunately prohibitive. The district recognizes parental concerns regarding students transporting often heavy or voluminous textbooks to and from school. Some students have successfully addressed this issue by utilizing compact handcarts.Parents who feel this is a significant problem for their child are also encouraged to contact campus principals to discuss possible campus-specific solutions.
