Letter: Reject Ridgefield school bonds

By Scott Gullickson, Ridgefield

The Ridgefield School District recently wasted $318,000 to pay an outgoing superintendent. Now they want voters to pass a nearly $200 million school bond. Based on 2023 data, Ridgefield is falling short of providing the best education possible. Nothing else takes priority over this sole purpose. OSPI data shows 51 percent of students are meeting state standards in math, 49 percent in science and 62 percent in English. These scores should be an embarrassment to the district. The district needs to focus on education, not fundraising. Vote “no.”
