Richland School District looking to add people to help pass bond

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. -- Richland School District will ask voters to approve a $98 million bond February, and they're hoping a newly formed citizens committee will help to make that happen.

The school board will hold a meeting Monday at 6:00pm at their main office in Richland, 615 Snow Avenue, to educate these volunteers about the bond proposal.

At the meeting, Superintendent Jim Busey will explain where the money will go, why it's needed and how they'll work to get the word out as well as conduct and question answer session.

The school's spokesperson Steve Aagaard is hoping for a big turnout. "We hope for a large committee because the more input we have, that would be more ideas for marketing. We got to get the word out. The citizens committee really has the specific task of going out to the community, letting people know what's on the bond and then getting them to vote yes," says Aagaard.

This is RSD's first school bond request in the last ten years.
