CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Members of the Horry County School Board are taking an important step toward getting new schools in Horry County Thursday. The site maps are ready, which means the committee working to plan for new schools will get a first look at some of the designs.
The Horry County Schools Conceptual Design Steering Committee members will go over site maps, or the ground views, for proposed elementary, intermediate, and middle schools. They are starting with the outside of the building so if they have any objections now, they can be taken care of early.
Deciding on what will be inside the schools is expected to be a complicated process. Some of the inside design ideas that have been tossed around so far are classrooms with glass walls, centralized learning centers, and multi-purpose classrooms.
But none have officially been put on paper yet.
"We could see changes when the board gets the final," Said Defeo. "The whole board could look at it and say nope, we want these changes. So until the board makes a final vote, anything can be changed."
The committee will meet at The Early College High School Building at 11 a.m., but architects won't present the full school designs in detail until August. Defeo says even then the board doesn't want to rush its decision, so a final decision on what your child's future school will look like may not be made until September.
