About CPPS

Students living in the city of College Place or its school boundaries attend elementary and middle school in College Place before moving to Walla Walla High School.

A full-day kindergarten program is offered.

Parents have the option for a half-day program, but the district does not offer afternoon transportation.

Students learn together at Davis Elementary through third grade, before moving to Meadow Brook Intermediate School for fourth, fifth and sixth grades. Next door to Meadow Brook is Sager Middle School, where students attend seventh and eighth grades.

Sager is also the site of the district's administrative offices.

New Davis and High School

In 2012, residents approved a $38.5 million bond measure to rebuild Davis Elementary into a K-5 school, reconfigure Meadow Brook into a middle school, and establish a public high school with the Sager building and some new construction.

A new Davis is anticipated to open by fall of 2014, and the high school phased in a couple of years later.

College Place School Board

The board of directors meet on the third Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. unless otherwise noted.

Members are: Doug Case, Marci Knauft, Susan Moulton, Brian Maiden and Troy Fitzgerald.
