In a report to the Cheney School Board at its Aug. 14 meeting, district Superintendent Rob Roettger made a surprise announcement — that the district is in the process of a purchase sale and agreement for property in Airway Heights.
The eventual land purchase, for 11.5 acres off of Craig Road, is aimed at combating the rising tide of growth in the district, one that shows no sign of slowing. The land is intended to be used for an elementary school; due to the rapid increase in K-5 enrollment, elementary schools districtwide have experienced the most overcrowding, Roettger said.
