Richland School Board Will Leave Boundary Lines Alone This Year

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-  Students in the Richland School District will not have to worry about moving away from their school friends for another year.

The Richland School Board decided Tuesday night that they will not make any adjustments to the elementary and middle school boundary lines this year.

The board was looking at options to reduce the overcrowding at Carmichael and Enterprise Middle Schools by changing the boundary lines to send some students to Chief Joe Middle School until the fourth middle school is built, but the board says for now they will leave it like it is.

Richland School Board President Rick Jansons said, "Our goal really is to move students only once as we build this middle school. We thought it was best right now to not make those changes."

Jansons says the board will discuss building the new middle school first and replacing the elementary schools later during their May workshop.

Board members decided for new construction developments being built, those students will be redistricted to Chief Joe Middle School.

A Follow up on the districts superintendent search.  Board members will take off Wednesday on a three day tour to visit all three finalists and their districts.

Jansons says they will select a new superintendent Monday, April 29.
