A Message from the Superintendent - November 3, 2019

The Richland School District Administration has become aware of an inappropriate and insensitive racist comment made on November 3, 2019, by a member of our student body during a school event at another district. This comment and inappropriate student responses to the comment have since circulated on social media. This type of hurtful behavior is not representative of the feelings and values of the 1,535 students in our district. The District promises a timely and thorough investigation of this incident and will implement appropriate and timely discipline.
