The 2012 - 2013 school year is now offically in session for all of the schools in the Spokane and Coeur d' Alene area. But some of those students are among the first to attend a few new and newly re-done schools. Those new schools include...
Kootenai Techincal Education Campus or KTEC
This new vocational school opened this year and is located in Rathdrum off of Lancaster Rd. More on KTEC can be found on this previous INBW post-
Westview Elementary School
Westview is a newly built elementary school that opened this year in the Spokane Public School District. Westview is located at 6104 N Moore St. in Northwest Spokane and it replaces a older and smaller school that was nearby. The old school was built is 1955 so the new building is a welcome addition to the Spokane Public School District. The new school takes up about 55,000 square feet and is capable of accepting 550 students.
Riverpoint is a new school for the Mead School District, But there is one rather obvious thing to note of this new techincal school that is actually in Downtown Spokane , a few miles south of suburban Mead. The school is within the same building as Inovate Washington (formerly SIRTI ) a business assistance program and business incubator service's building at 665 N. Riverpoint Blvd. .
Cheney School District's 2 new schools.
Cheney Public Schools are a growing district so to help fill that need the former old middle school has been split into 2 brand new middle schools that opened to faculty and students for the first time this year. The new schools are Cheney Middle School located at 740 Beltz Rd in Cheney and Westwood Middle School also in Cheney at 6120 S. Abbott Rd.
Spokane Public Schools are also involved in several other new school projects which will open in the future,more on those later....
