This summer, the Kershaw County School Board voted to close Mt. Pisgah Elementary School, Baron DeKalb Elementary School and Bethune Elementary School and build a new elementary school that can serve up to 600 students. The new school will open in the 2021-22 school year.

The school will be built by Hood Construction. Architects for the project are Pike-McFarland-Hall Associates, Inc. & UWPD Architecture, Inc.
