On November 6, 2018, Lexington County School District One voters, with more than 56 percent of the vote, voted for and passed a $365 million five-year building plan (2018–2023) that ensures that it can continue to offer its students the facilities they need now and in the future.
Since the district understands that those same voters want to keep up with the progress of the 2018–2023 building plan, it developed a webpage designed to do just that.
The site enables voters to see what is currently happening at their child’s school and includes “before” photographs, the current phase taking place, photographs of that progress, etc. In fact, voters can click on the initials of their child’s school and go directly to that progress update.
In addition, the district plans to post board action and updates regarding the building plan there, too.
As a reminder, the building plan includes updated safety and security systems at all district schools and facilities; three new schools to replace old schools and increase student capacity; two new elementary schools needed to accommodate student growth; renovations, additions, and/or upgrades to 14 elementary schools, five middle schools, five high schools, the district’s maintenance facility, technology center, and community learning center; a new district transportation facility; and information technology equipment and furniture to create Future Ready Classrooms at all schools.
