Richland's New Superintendent Discusses Plans for District

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - Richland's new school superintendent, Rick Schulte, returned to the Mid-Columbia Tuesday for the first time since he accepted the job.

Schulte met with members of the board and joined them in a workshop. He says he has lots of work ahead of him to get better acquainted with the district and the community.

He says being a good superintendent requires learning about the entire community, inside the schools and out.

"One of the things that appeals to me about Richland is the strong community support for the schools. That's something that doesn't happen by accident. That's something that has to be continually maintained and upgraded and so I want to become part of that network of support as well," Shulte said.

Schulte says he will modify his goals for advanced academic classes and job preparedness programs to meet the needs of Richland's interests. His motto for success in schools, equity and excellence, is something he plans to bring to the Richland School District as well.

Schulte begins on July 1 But he is getting involved right away.
