Please join us in supporting the upcoming bond for the Richland School District. The ages of some of the schools are a big concern to our educational process. One of the wings at Jefferson Elementary was built in the 1950s and needs replacing. Mold issues, outdated wiring, along with heating and air deficiencies are just some of the concerns in several of the buildings.
All of these factors make the job of educating that much more difficult and, indeed, even hazardous for staff and students. If we, as voters, put this off, it will only be revisited next year at an increased cost.
