Three new schools would be built in Fort Mill if voters approve the financing in a $190 million bond referendum in March.
The Fort Mill school board decided in a 6-0 Wednesday, with one member absent, to ask voters on March 20 to approve a $190 million bond package for new schools and other needs, said Joe Burke, spokesperson for the district.
The money would be used to pay for a new middle school and two new elementary schools. It also would be used to pay for technology projects, building maintenance, the purchase of school buses and land for future schools, the school district said Thursday.
“With our growth, we don’t really have a choice,” board member Diane Dasher said Thursday. “There is not any sign that it is slowing down.”
