    • The 2019-2022 levy is not a new tax.
    • The current levy expires at the end of 2018.
    • RSD residents are being asked to renew the levy.
    • The levy allows the District to continue essential programs which are not fully funded by the state.

  • RSD Weather Information

    As we get closer to winter, it may be necessary for the Richland School District to close or delay school due to ice, snow, or other emergency conditions. During inclement weather conditions, the Transportation Director is responsible for conducting road checks. He assesses the road network for safety of school buses and other commuter traffic. Based upon this input, the Superintendent of Schools will make the decision to delay or cancel school, or to open on time.
    The Superintendent’s decision will be communicated via the District web site (www.rsd.edu) and Facebook page, and by local radio and television stations beginning at approximately 5:45 am.
    If ever you disagree with our decision regarding school delays or closures, please know that it is considered an excused absence if you decide to keep your child home from school. Please inform and provide your child's school with a signed note. The final decision on whether or not to send your child to school is yours.

  • Falcon Attendance


    • Students should miss no more than 9 days each year to stay engaged, successful and on track to graduation. 
    • By 9th grade, regular and high attendance is a better predictor of graduation rates than 8th grade test scores.
    • Missing 10%, or about 18 days, of the school year can drastically affect a student’s academic success.
    • Students can be chronically absent even if they only miss a day or two every few weeks.
  • Hanford High is in the top 50 Best High Schools in Washington
