CHENEY PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO FORM FUTURE SCHOOL SITE PLANNING COMMITTEE

As the District plans for future property purchases for school sites, it will be important to consider all of the necessary information before making final decisions.To that end, Cheney Public Schools will form a School Site Planning Committee, to include school district leadership, civic and community leaders in Airway Heights, Cheney, the West Plains, and Spokane County. As part of the decision-making process, the District will need to identify available property within our District boundaries that is outside of the flight zone and within the UGA. We will also need to consider the projected housing, commercial and enrollment growth which will occur throughout the District that could potentially impact future school siting. It is anticipated the committee will begin meeting in either July or August of this year. Following the initial meeting, a timeline for continued planning and work will be established.
