About Capital Plan

On March 15, 2016, the residents of School District 7 clearly expressed their expectations for the children of our community and their faith in the District’s capital plans for the future. With the endorsement of a $185M bond measure, the District is now positioned to fulfill a number of projects that will bring about significant advances for our school system.
As we implement our Vision for 2020, we look forward to a process that will engage District 7 faculty and staff, students and parents and a wide range of community partners and stakeholders. To keep you abreast of our progress, in the months to come, we’ll use the District’s website to share ongoing updates and information about the three key projects approved in the plan.

NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TO REPLACE HOUSTON AND CHAPMAN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

LOCATION: Skylyn Drive in the Drayton Community
ESTIMATED COST $36 million
OPENING DATE Fall 2018
To be located in the Drayton Community, the new school will be built for 800 students and will replace Houston and Chapman Elementary Schools.
Houston and Chapman are 47 and 62 years old, respectively, and no longer meet the required standards for today’s school facilities. The new elementary school will be a focal point for the developing neighborhoods currently being designed by Pacolet Milliken Enterprises.

NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART HIGH SCHOOL DESIGNED FOR 2,100 STUDENTS, WITH A CORE CAPACITY OF 2,500 STUDENTS.

LOCATION: The former Lan-Yair Golf Club on East Main Street
ESTIMATED COST: $128 million
OPENING DATE: Fall 2019
The new Spartanburg High School will provide flexible spaces conducive to 21st century teaching and learning. Included in one efficiently designed campus, the high school will provide students and faculty with larger classrooms and gathering spaces to accommodate collaborative, project-based learning; fine arts and athletic facilities that support performances and athletic events; a modern guidance and career center; more parking; and optimal visibility and egress.

RENOVATION OF THE EXISTING SPARTANBURG HIGH SCHOOL TO CREATE A NEW MCCRACKEN MIDDLE SCHOOL.

LOCATION: Dupre Dr.
ESTIMATED COST: $11.6 million
OPENING DATE: Fall 2020
Classroom sizes at the current McCracken Middle School are well below current space requirements and the acreage for athletic and extracurricular activities is limited. Converting the high school to a modern middle school will yield a number of advantages for students and faculty, including the addition of flexible learning spaces, greater room for fine arts and athletic events, optimal classroom sizes and additional parking.
