Friday, march 12, 1965 Cheney Free Press Page $ | A Step At A Time- OUR NEXT STEP Cheney School District No 360 Special Election DISTRICT 360'S LONG-RANGE PLAN Step One of the long-range plan, approval of $500,000 in bonds and a $177,894 special levy, was approved by the voters at a special school election on September ] 5, ] 964. This money, along with state matching funds and Amber School District funds will Build the new Cheney High School Remodel the 1929 High School for use as a Junior High School Provide minimum furniture for the new Cheney High School. Step Two Now, the School board is asking district vot- ers to give consideration to the second step of the long- range plan. This step, to be voted upon at a special school election on Tuesday, March 16, 1965, will provide part of the furniture and equipment for the new high school and remodelled junior high school, grassed fields for phy- sical education and community use at all five of the dis- trict's elementary schools, a new football field and track at the new high school, and the two additional school bus- es needed to transport eighth-graders from Windsor and Sunset areas to the Junior High School. Funds needed for these projects total $116,000, approximately 9.9 mills of special levy. TWO I M PORTANT FACTS Fact One-In the School Board's original long-range plan it was estimated that the special levy method for Step Two would be $]55,350, approximately 13 mills. Now, because... Careful investment of the buildings fund monies voted voted in September, 1964, will earn approximately $25,000 for the district, More exact figuring of the cost of equipment and fur- niture for the project has lowered the estimated cost from $142,000 to $130,000, and Provision of grassed areas for all schools calls for com- munity participation which will reduce the amount of contracted services required, the Step Two levv on March 16, 1965, asks for $116,000, approximately 9.9 mills, which is a reduction of $39,350, or over 3 mills of tax. Fact Two-The levy voted in September, 1964, was for one year, 1965 taxes, only. The levy to be voted upon on March ] 6, 1965, is for one year, 1966 taxes, only. Approv- al of the March levy will reduce taxes for special levies from 15.2 mills in ]965 to 9.9 mills in ]966. The thing to remember is that the second levy replaces last fall's levy -it is not in addition to it. Continue The Progress Our School District Has Made The following have studied the in formation describing the needs of the school district and think the continuation of the Long-Range Plan is the right thing to do. They support the Step 2 Levy of 9.9 mills to be used for the purchase of needed equipment, furniture and school bus- es, and for providing grassed PE areas at all our schools, and a new foot- ball field and track at the high school. nth ol CHENEY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE CHENEY EDUCATION ASS'N CHENEY HiGH SCHOOL PTA, EXECUTIVE BOARD GARDEN SPRINGS PTO PUBLIC SCHOOL EMPLOYEES CHENEY LIONS CLUB MRS.
