The Richland School District Special Programs office encompasses many programs. The programs include Special Education, the Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program, Title I, Title III, the Learning Assistance Program, and the State Transitional Bilingual Instructional Program. These state and federal programs are designed to increase learning for students. An emphasis is placed on academic support to help ensure eligible students meet our rigorous state standards.  For more information, call 967-6050.

Special Programs Review

In the Richland School District’s ongoing efforts to improve its schools even better, the district pursued an independent review of its special education programs during the spring of 2018. This review was conducted by an independent, third-party professional organization known for its expertise and ability to show school districts how they can better serve students requiring extra support to succeed in the classroom.

The review made recommendations to help our special programs better identify and provide services to our students with special needs. All are aimed at ensuring every student has access to high quality instruction and support so they can have fulfilling lives upon graduation.

The Richland School Board and district officials this fall will plan the multi-year process to implement those recommendations necessary to ensure our schools are truly “Educating Every Student for Success.” This winter we will begin working with school staff members to put those plans in place and move our schools and students forward.

McKinney Education for Homeless Children and Youth

The Homeless Education office at OSPI oversees the federal McKinney Education for Homeless Children and Youth program, also known as "McKinney-Vento." The program provides federal funding to states for the purpose of supporting district programs that serve homeless students.  For more information, go to: http://www.k12.wa.us/HomelessEd/default.aspx
