WEST RICHLAND, WA - The Richland School Board holds a meeting Monday night to discuss the district's bond projects.
Voters approved the $98 million bond in February to build two new schools, replace three, and make upgrades at several others, but people living in West Richland say the changes aren't helping the overcrowding at their schools.
District Communications Director Steve Aagaard says that's why the board chose to hold Monday's meeting at Enterprise Middle School in West Richland.
"We hope people in West Richland and all over the Richland community will come," Aagaard said, "it'll give them a chance to see what's going on with the design work on all the schools and ask questions if they have questions about timelines, also future projects, when will the new schools be going in out in West Richland, south Richland, so forth."
Superintendent Rick Schulte plans to hold a question and answer session about the district's nine projects at Monday night's meeting.
