PASCO, Wash.- Two down and now one school district is left to vote on a joint resolution that would move plans forward to build a new Delta High School.
The Pasco and Richland School Districts voted Tuesday night and passed the joint resolution as written.
The Kennewick School Board is scheduled to vote on the same resolution Wednesday night.
Pasco Superintendent, Saundra Hill said, "All three school board presidents and superintendents previously held meetings to work out specifics, which led to all three verbally agreeing to the revised resolution.
The Kennewick School Board is now needed to sign off on the new resolution in order to move forward.
"The resolution and underlying district cooperative agreement is required to be approved to apply for state funding to build 90-percent of the cost of the school, which is obviously very important to all of us to get help with that," said Hill.
The new joint agreement does not specify any one district as the host site for the new Delta High School, which opens up options for other locations.
"By looking at alternative locations, we may be able to rebuild for less than the original $15-million estimated," Hill said.
As well as, all three districts to share in equal ownership of the new facility.
Delta High School is the only stem school of its kind in the entire state.
