RICHLAND -- The Richland School Board will discuss Delta High School at its Tuesday meeting as the district and the Pasco and Ken- newick school districts look toward the school's future home.
Pasco and Kennewick have agreed to $400,000 contributions each for the project. Richland's contribution could be up to $1 million to purchase property in Richland for the new facility, Pasco school officials said in late March.
Delta, which focuses on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines, has about 300 students and will become a full four-year high school next fall.
The three districts oversee the school as a partnership with the Washington State STEM Education Foundation, formed to support the school's mission.
Never miss a local story.
Karen Baker, the foundation's executive director, told the Herald the school already is out of space in the buildings it leases from Columbia Basin College in downtown Richland.
Some students already attend classes in another neighboring CBC building.
The foundation would be responsible for the physical construction of the building. Fundraising for the project is in the early stages.
