2018–2023 BUILDING PLAN Progress


On November 6, 2018, Lexington County School District One voters, with more than 56% of the vote, voted for and passed a $365 million five-year building plan (2018–2023) that ensures that we can continue to offer our students the facilities they need now and in the future. 

This 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 for Future Ready Classrooms at all schools.

Since the district understands that those same voters want to keep up with the progress of the building plan, we developed this webpage to do just that. This 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 below and go directly to that school’s progress update.
