  • Strong community support for RSD levy proposals

    Richland School District residents approved two four-year levy propositions on Tuesday night. The initial count from the Benton County Auditor’s office is:
    ·            Proposition #1 – Educational Programs Levy - 68% yes vote
    ·            Proposition #2 – Technology Levy - 66% yes vote
    “Thank you to our community for this positive result,” said Superintendent Rick Schulte. “Election results like this attract quality teachers and support staff to the Richland School District. It brings families to our community who value education, and who, in turn, support businesses and other services.”
                "We appreciate our community’s strong tradition of supporting RSD students through local levy support," stated Rick Jansons, President of the Richland School Board. “Approval of these two measures is especially gratifying given the changes and confusion following the state legislature’s action last year.”
                Local levy money makes up about 19% of the Richland School District operating budget.

  • 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.

  • Gold Standard for HHS

  • 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

    The Counseling Services staff would like reminded students that support is available to anyone who needs it at the Hanford High School Counseling Office.

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.
