Facilities Planning for the Future
In 2019, Beaufort County voters’ approval of the school district’s $344 million bond referendum – the largest bond referendum in the district’s history – was a dramatic demonstration of support for our 22,000 students and the bright futures we aim for them to achieve. To learn more about the Nov. 7, 2023 referendum please visit the 2023 Bond Referendum.
Individual referendum projects, spread out over a four- to-five-year period ending in 2024 or 2025, can be found on the Citizen-Led Oversight Committee (CLOC) webpage. CLOC is an independent group of volunteers who monitor all referendum building projects, schedules, budgets and expenditures and provide quarterly reports to the Board of Education. On the CLOC webpage, you will find their reports and meeting minutes, a history of the 2019 Referendum; how it was developed; how referendum projects were determined; presentations, meeting minutes and information relating to the work of the all-volunteer Community Project Review Committee; and, all referendum projects listed by schools including referendum project-related reports and pictures.
Please download the Facilities Master Plan that addresses the district's ongoing annual needs, and establishes priorities for new facilities, additions, renovations, and sustainment projects. For this year’s book, staff have focused efforts on examining the instructional programs and recalculating a programmatic capacity for each school based on their current usage. Understanding this usage in conjunction with the building capacity will guide the District and Board in making better decisions on how our facilities are used for the next 5 years.
