Statement Regarding Enterprise City

Enterprise City has been offered in the district for over 35 years and has provided an invaluable real-world learning experience for RISD students.  There is a district team researching and making recommendations on how we can improve the learning opportunities offered as part of the Enterprise City curriculum.  This includes whether to relaunch the program as its current location at Canyon Creek Elementary, move the learning experience to another location to expand upon the curriculum and instructional strategies currently used or if providing a mobile learning experience would allow additional RISD students to benefit from the hands-on learning provided through Enterprise City.  The timeline for a recommendation on plans for the next generation of Enterprise City in RISD is late Spring 2022.  The district is committed to continuing the Enterprise City learning experience and looks forward to sharing more information with the community later this school year.
