This building plan, approved by the voters as part of the district’s Nov. 6, 2018 $365 million five-year building plan (2018–2023), ensures that the district can continue to offer its students the facilities they need now and in the future.

Since the district understands that Lexington District One residents want to keep up with the progress of the building plan, the district developed a webpage to do just that. This site enables residents 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.
