Several items of information were incorrectly reported in the story “Chamber gets West Plains schools overview” in the Sept. 26 Cheney Free Press.
It was listed that the Cheney School District’s 2018-2019 enrollment was 4,202 students. The actual enrollment was 4,898.
Also, in the sentence “School officials expect student enrollment to top 10,000 students in the next 10 years,” Cheney district communications coordinator Shannen Talbot said it was not a school official who said the remark but a member of the chamber audience. Enrollment estimates provided for the district by Davis Demographics forecast 9,290 students by 2029.
