The planned location for School District Five’s Elementary School 13 is on Amicks Ferry Road in Chapin, S.C.

     “As we’ve said before, the purpose of this meeting is to provide an opportunity to review and discuss individually with representatives the proposed design plans for Elementary School 13,” said School District Five School Board Chairman Robert Gantt. “Another purpose of the meeting is to gather information from the public on questions or concerns. Personnel from the design firm will be available to answer questions and discuss the project with interested members of the public individually.”

     Here’s what to expect:

    •  Architects and engineers with the project will be available to answer questions from members of the public about the new school design. 
    • The drop-in type event will include displays for viewing and discussion with designers.
    • In addition to architects and engineers being available to answer questions, members of the public will have the opportunity to provide written comments and questions.
    • Members of the public who can not attend the event may visit the project website to submit input through the online comment card, which will be posted after the meeting through January 31. 
    • Written comments and questions will be reviewed for patterns, and questions will be answered in a Frequently Asked Questions document that will be posted on the website in February.

    Information provided at the Jan. 24 event will be available online after the meeting at www.lexrich5.org/elementaryschool13. The website also includes more information on the new elementary school, including updates and videos.
