The original Richey Elementary School opened for the first time in 1958. It remained a neighborhood school until it was chosen as a pilot site for the fundamental school concept in 1978. In 1994, the Pasco County School Board voted to return Richey Elementary to a neighborhood school, and this status has remained. In 2011 construction began on a new facility, which was completed in February of 2013.
Richey Elementary’s enrollment for the 2016 – 2017 school year is an estimated 700 students K-5. Richey qualifies as a Title I school which assists us in meeting the needs to our students. Title I helps to support the food and nutrition program, funds additional instructional support, and provides many other resources that benefit the school. Richey Elementary provides services for students Pre K – 5th grade. In addition to our general education programs, Richey has programs for Pre-K Head Start; primary and intermediate varying exceptionalities; emotionally handicapped; educable mentally handicapped; specific learning disabilities; and speech and language services.
Family and community involvement is strongly promoted through our Title I Family Compact. Information is regularly distributed to promote family involvement in social and academic areas. Monthly Family Fun Nights and our PTO are just a few ways to be involved. Our goal is to create a positive and cohesive environment where all students will be successful.
