A note from the Superintendent:
 
2015 Bond Fact:  
Enrollment has steadily grown
in the district over the past five
years. Over the next six years it is
projected that enrollment will increase
by another 600 students. 150 of these students are anticipated to enroll at CHS.
 
2015 Levy Fact:
Levy = learning and programs.  Levy funds provide teachers and support staff (counselors, nurses, specialists) beyond those provided by state ratios. These funds also provide additional time for teachers beyond the number of days paid by the state. The time is used for professional development, curriculum improvement, preparation, extended responsibilities for staff, and time for teachers beyond actual school instructional days.

  • THANKS TO CMS TEACHER JEFF OMLIN
    CMS Teacher Jeff Omlin truly "Goes the Distance" for kids in so many ways. From AVID to coaching, to supporting students in their personal, social and academic goals, Mr. Omlin understands what it means to connect with the "whole child." Recently, Jeff could be found passing out free college t-shirts to the students of CMS who needed college colors to wear for College Colors Day. Jeff wrote to countless alumni associations seeking donations of t-shirts to help our students get in the college spirit, and start setting college-minded goals and awareness. Thanks for everything you do for kids and CMS, Mr. Omlin!

  • DISTRICT FEATURED IN WASHINGTON GROWN VIDEO
    Cheney Public Schools implemented a childhood obesity prevention initiative in 2011 that has created a culture of healthy eating and healthier lifestyles. Our Back to Scratch school kitchens provide children with a healthy entrée, fresh fruits, and vegetables every day. Our research shows that the changes we have implemented have resulted in BMI rates dropping; however, more importantly we know that healthy children do better in school. Check out the video produced by Washington Grown to be aired on our local KSPS television station on February 2nd at 7:30 p.m. http://www.wagrown.com/episodes-and-clips/KDOP8JNwheE. It features our Cheney Middle School students and staff at approximately 18:40 into the program.
