  • 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.

  • District announces $9.5 million savings for taxpayers

    The Richland School District is reducing tax costs for taxpayers. On December 7, the District sold $29.5 million worth of construction bonds at a 2.80% interest rate, significantly lower than the expected 3.02% rate. This favorable rate along with paying off some of the bonds in four years instead of 15 years will result in interest savings of $9.5 million.

    “This is $9.5 million that RSD taxpayers will not have to pay in interest costs,” says Superintendent Rick Schulte.

    The District’s strong Aa2 bond rating from Moody's attracted investors to purchase the bonds. “The Aa2 rating reflects the District's sound financial position and our history of solid money management,” adds Schulte.

    The bonds sold are from the February 2017 bond issue election. RSD residents approved the measure with a 62% yes vote.

  • 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


    Benton Franklin Crisis

    The Counseling Services staff would like reminded students that support is available to anyone who needs it at the Hanford High School Counseling Office. Also, two additional resources everyone can access are the Benton-Franklin Crisis Response Unit and the Crisis Text Line. The Crisis Text Line serves anyone, in any type of crisis, providing access to free, 24/7 support and information via text messaging. All you do is text 741741 and a live, trained crisis counselor receives the text and responds quickly. The Crisis Text Line does not charge texters, but standard messaging rates may apply.
