It will cost the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) $5 million less to build replacements for Camden, Lugoff and Wateree elementary schools than originally estimated. The Kershaw County Board of School Trustees voted unanimously Tuesday to issue three guaranteed maximum (GMP) price contracts to two firms to build the new schools for a total of approximately $56.49 million. The original estimates put the cost building the three schools at more than $60 million.
