Work underway on Cheney elementary school expansion

An expansion at Windsor Elementary School west of Spokane has begun, adding new classrooms and multipurpose rooms.

The work is part of a $7.25 million project to build eight additional classrooms at the Cheney School District school, funded through a bond approved by voters last year. The 21-year, $52-million bond will fund a number of projects, including $35.1 million to expand the overcrowded Cheney High School, $7.89 million to build 10 additional classrooms at Sunset Elementary and $3.2 million to build seven additional classrooms at Betz Elementary.

The district tried to pass a $44.9 million bond in 2015, but it fell just short of the necessary 60 percent support.

The renovation of Windsor, which is east of Grove Road north of Cheney, is being designed by ALSC Architects, of Spokane.
