CHENEY – The school district board of directors voted unanimously on Aug. 3 to begin the 2020-2021 school year with most students taking part in the remote learning phase of the district’s proposed six-step plan for reopening.
Under this stage three of the plan, students in the greatest need of support (educational justice) may participate onsite with in-person instruction.
The board also approved a new calendar for the school year, dividing the 180 days of instruction into four separate but unequal quarters and pushing back the opening of school from Sept. 2 to Sept. 8.
