Richland moving forward with "two school" plan

Richland moving forward with "two school" plan
RICHLAND, Wash. -- Two schools will operate on the Sacajawea campus sometime in the next two years.

Richland City Council voted to move forward with the plan.

Neighbors had appealed the decision.

They cited traffic and safety issues created by putting Marcus Whitman students on the same campus as the Sacajawea kids.

Whitman students will use the old Sacajawea building once the new Sacajawea school is built.

This leaves two schools in two buildings on one lot.

After a year like that, the old Sacajawea will be torn down and Marcus Whitman kids will use their new school.

It's all being paid for with the bond.
