School Board Approves Preliminary Bond Issue Proposal

August 25, 2016

The Richland School Board recently approved a preliminary list of projects for a February 2017 bond issue election:

  • Replace Badger Mountain Elementary School
  • Replace Tapteal Elementary School
  • New elementary school on Belmont Boulevard (property already owned by the District)
  • New elementary school at a site to be determined
  • Richland High School – auditorium improvements
  • Fran Rish Stadium – home side improvements and installation of field turf
  • Hanford High School – athletic field improvements including installation of bleachers (2000 seats), restrooms, and field turf
  • New RSD Teaching & Learning Center
  • Jefferson Preschool
  • Modular Classrooms

 “We’ve been good stewards of our community’s tax dollars and that will continue,” stated Rick Jansons, President of the Richland School Board. “We must keep up with the District’s enrollment growth and improve the facilities we already have.”

The District is in the process of developing the bond finance plan and determining the estimated tax rate. Once the finance plan and tax rate are finalized, an official bond election resolution will be presented to board members for their approval.
