Chandler USD district headquarters (Alexa D'Angelo/Community Impact Newspaper)
At a governing board meeting Jan. 8, the Chandler USD board approved an item requesting the city of Chandler annex the district's latest high school into the city.
The high school will be located at the corner of Brooks Farm and Gilbert roads. The land on which the school will be built is in Maricopa County and is considered a county island, which is a parcel of land near a city of town that is not technically in that city or town and that is owned by the county.
According to the item on the board's agenda, being a county island can present some challenges at a school in the areas of police, fire, potable water and more.
The board voted unanimously to request City Council annex the property into Chandler.
