From missiles to math books - Cheney School District dedicates new support site


John McCallum

The Cheney School District's Homeworks program has much more space in its new home at the Satellite and Support Services Site than its former location in the Fisher Building.

Theoretically, with a pair of good binoculars, on a clear day a person can see every school in the Cheney School District from the top of 2,884-foot Needham Hill.

The hill officially became the location to the district's Satellite and Support Services Site with a dedication ceremony last Wednesday, Aug. 20, prior to the school board's regular August meeting. The district purchased the site at 12414 S. Andrus Road in spring 2012 for $29,117 from the U.S. Air Force after an acquisition process that began not long after the former communication station was recommended for closure in 2005.
