Perseverance pays off for recent HHS graduates
A positive story of perseverance from Hanford High School......Four students who returned to complete their graduation requirements have achieved that goal. Jesse Enriquez, Carter Koopman, Fernando Gonzalez, and Madison Young-Dailey (not pictured below) were awarded diplomas last week.
“We are so proud of their efforts and the courage each one showed in coming back to high school, overcoming obstacles, and earning their diplomas,” said HHS counselor Debbie Bell.
District residents show solid support for operations levy
The Richland School District operations levy was overwhelmingly approved Tuesday night. District residents passed the ballot measure with a 72% yes vote. The approved levy will provide $24.2 million in 2017 and $25.4 million in 2018.
“A big thank you to our community for this positive result,” said Superintendent Rick Schulte. “This local support benefits all aspects of District operations. It helps attract highly qualified teachers and support staff. It brings families to our community who value education, and who, in turn, support employers, businesses, recreation, and other services.”
"What a great community to live in,” stated Rick Jansons, President of the Richland School Board. “Our residents are continuing their long tradition of supporting District students and, for this, we are grateful."
Local levy money makes up 17% of the Richland School District operating budget. The state does not fully fund essential operations including: instructional materials, art/music/library, transportation, athletics/activities, utilities expenses, and technology enhancement.
