Thank you for your investment in Richfield students!

Dear Richfield Community,

On behalf of the entire Richfield Public School District community, we want to thank you for your support, partnership and (most recently) your investment in our students. The November 7 referendum results show how strongly our community values strong public schools and cares about Richfield students.

Question 1: Renewing our Technology Levy 

With an 81% YES vote, we will be able to fund reliable technology in our District, which will allow us to personalize instruction, enhance student achievement, prepare students for a rapidly changing world, provide equitable access to schoolwork, make school operations more efficient and enhance security for people, property and data.

Question 2: Replacing the Operating Referendum

With a 72% YES vote, our schools will have more equitable funding. We can maintain small class sizes, personalize learning, support students who struggle (academically and social-emotionally) and stabilize school funding for the future.

We want you to know that we take your trust in us very seriously. We will continue to be good stewards of the funds invested in our schools. We will continue to provide a high-quality education that meets students where they are and helps them gain the skills and confidence they need to reach their dreams.

We are proud of our teachers and staff, of our students and families, and of our community. We will continue to deliver on our promises. We could not be more proud to serve as your Richfield Public School District leaders.
