RICHLAND, Wash.- The Richland School Board officially signed off on their $98 million bond resolution Tuesday night.
The school board approved the changes made to their original bond proposal.
The main change was made to retain Jefferson Elementary as a K-5 school and to provide the space to serve the existing enrollment there.
The Richland School Board Communications Director says they've moved on this bond resolution as quickly as they could to get to this point.
"They really needed to look at data and get input from the public about this whole situation with whether to have Jefferson as a k-5 or bro re-purpose it. And they made their decision to keep it as a school. I think it moved as quickly as they could. Now the campaign really begins to get ready for the 2013 vote," said Steve Aagaard.
Next, the approved resolution will go on to the Benton County Auditor and on to the February ballot for voting.
