Construction work will begin soon in 28 communities across our great state to build new schools, add classrooms, new gyms, and new auditoriums, as well as renovate and repair older school buildings thanks to $395 million raised by the lottery.
In all, 28 counties will receive money to complete 42 projects. The money comes from one of the state’s school construction programs designed to help meet the critical needs for new schools and classrooms in North Carolina.
Since the start of the lottery 16 years ago, North Carolina has always used a portion of the money raised by the lottery to help counties with the costs of school construction. It will be great to see all these new schools and school buildings opening soon.
Here’s what you can expect to see popping up all across our state:
- 14 new schools
- 18 renovation or repair projects
- 9 projects featuring additional classrooms, new gymnasiums, or new auditoriums.
Here’s a list of those 28 school systems and how much they will receive:
