Hello Aaron Noel,
You can perform the optimization suggestions provided above. You can put a RadScriptManager on your master pages instead of using the ASP.NET ScriptManager and set the script manager to combine scripts as well as set it in release mode so that it loads minified scripts. You can check out this blog post
which has tips on improving performance.
All the best,
the Telerik team
