The Richland School Board will meet in a closed-door session at noon today to discuss real estate that could be used for a new middle school building.
Board members have spent years looking for property suitable for a middle school, particularly in the southern and western portions of the district. The district is coming up against a deadline to have land selected.
Difficulty finding land for the project has led the board to consider changing the $98 million bond that was to pay for the project to build another middle school instead. Board members also recently discussed shifting sixth-graders back to the elementary levels to make room in the middle schools.
