While classes have been in session for several months, Jackson School will formally be dedicated Sunday at 3 p.m.

The new Jackson School will be officially dedicated at 3 p.m. Sunday. The featured speaker is S.C. Law Enforcement Division Director Reggie Lloyd, and the public is invited to attend. 

 “Jackson is certainly a school that everyone in our community can be proud of,” said Kershaw County School District Superintendent Frank Morgan.  “In addition to being a beautiful facility, the benefits associated with it being built as a ‘green school’ are tremendous.”

 Morgan said this is the county’s first school built to pursue Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. LEED-certified buildings are awarded points based on environmentally-friendly components of the building. Features at Jackson help to conserve water, use solar energy, provide natural light, protect the air quality and recycle materials. 

 The new school -- located at 1730 Jefferson Davis Highway -- is 81,211 square feet and built to serve 550 students in grades kindergarten through 5th grade.

 This is the final school construction project completed out of the district’s $102.2 million facilities equalization project.
