Located only 20 minutes from downtown Spokane, the population of Liberty Lake is growing by leaps and bounds. In the past five years, the number of students enrolled in the CVSD grades K-12 has grown from 13,000 to 14,000 and is expected to continually rise.
As the number of students climb, the district continues to add programs and resources for students and parents alike: From enrichment classes and athletics to free summer meals for kids ages 1-18.
Below is a list of some of the programs offered to school aged students enrolled in the district. However, families are encouraged to contact their child’s school for more details and to obtain a full list of activities.
Spokane Valley Tech – Exploring high-growth careers: Students enrolled in grades 8-11 are encouraged to attend at no cost. Successful completion of each session earns a .5 elective/CTE credit. Two sessions are offered: June 17–July 2 and July 8–23, both from 7:30am –2:30pm. Students may attend up to one class per session.
