BISD Board Names New Partner Elementary
BISD’s board of trustees approved Cheney Hills Elementary as the name of the new partner elementary replacing Cheney and Richland elementary schools. A committee made up of community members from Richland Elementary and Major Cheney Elementary recommended several names, possible school colors, and mascots to a subcommittee of the Board. The Board subcommittee recommended to the full Board to name the new school Cheney Hills Elementary. The school colors shall be red and blue with an accent of gold, and they (staff and students) shall be known as the Cardinals [the mascot]. The Board unanimously approved the recommendations. This new campus was approved by voters in the 2018 bond and is scheduled to open in fall 2021.
