A new elementary school could be built to replace two in the West Wateree area. The Kershaw County Board of School Trustees discussed the possibility during its meeting Tuesday. The larger school -- if included in a preliminary project list for the second phase of the Kershaw County School District’s (KCSD) facilities equalization program -- would be built as a replacement for Wateree and Lugoff elementary schools, both of which are more than 40 years old.
