Walla Walla High School staff tour regional schools to review school designs following successful bond (Photo) - 01/11/19

WALLA WALLA – Thursday Walla Walla Walla High School staff serving on the Education Specification Bond Construction Planning Team toured Pullman High School, North Central High School (Spokane) and Ferris High School (Spokane) to review current educational designs and best practices. Representatives from Architects West and Wenaha Group construction management firm also participated.

These tours represent the launch of the Educational Specifications phase of the bond construction process with a goal of generating ideas and discussion about potential design decisions for the Walla Walla High School remodel.

“This step, referred to as ‘Ed Specs’, incorporates practitioner input in order to put some ‘meat’ to the general concepts approved by voters in November,” said Superintendent Wade Smith. “This input process helps inform a preliminary space layout and floorplan which is then shared with staff, community, students and others for continued input and refinement.”

The Ed Specs process will continue, with multiple opportunities for input, as the district slowly refines concepts into final construction documents over the coming months. Pioneer Middle School staff are tentatively set to tour regional schools in February.

School bus fleet records perfect score during surprise inspection (Photo) - 01/09/19

WALLA WALLA - Congratulations to the staff at the Southeast Washington Transportation Cooperative for their hard working keeping school buses safe and operational following a perfect score from the Washington State Patrol during a recent surprise semi-annual inspection. 

“The state patrol inspectors can show up at anytime so it’s a surprise to us when they come to inspect,” said Transportation Director John Griffith. “This time two officers showed up the day after Christmas and inspected 14 of our school buses and the results were 100 percent operational.”

Washington State Patrol inspectors look for service infractions, including defective brakes out of service warning lights, loose items on the bus, cracked windshields, damaged windshield wipers and tire wear.

“Inspectors complimented the mechanics and the district for doing a fantastic job,” said Griffith. “They always enjoy their visit.”
