Liberty School DistrictThe Liberty School District is located in south Spokane County in Eastern Washington State. It encompasses approximately 300 square miles. The district was formed in 1960 through the consolidation of the Fairfield and Spangle School Districts, each of which had previously consolidated several small school districts. The district includes six separate communities: Fairfield, Latah, Plaza, Spangle, Mt. Hope, and Waverly. The original Liberty School District was built at the time when the Palouse Region was first being settled. In order to preserve a bit of history, the new Liberty district assumed not only the old name, but also the original site of the old school. This location also places the present school campus near the geographic center of the district.
The district borders Spokane School District to the north, Cheney to the west, Tekoa and Rosalia to the south, and Freeman and the state of Idaho to the east. The southern portion of the district is largely prime agricultural land, with some scab land and pine forests. The District's economy is largely dependent on agriculture, food processing, a gas pipeline, a cedar finish mill, and some retail business. Major crops include wheat, barley, peas, lentils, and bluegrass. New housing developments are occurring along the northern portion of the district near the City of Spokane. It is anticipated that an accompanying population growth will occur in the future throughout this area.
The Liberty community is very supportive of its schools including maintenance & operation levies, attendance at sporting and arts events, and support for technology and repair bonds.Our Schools
