Three Florence high schools could be upgraded if voters pass the plan
Florence, S.C. (WPDE) —
Voters will have a say on the future of three Florence School District 1 high schools in an upcoming referendum.
Under the proposal, West Florence High School, South Florence High School, and Wilson High School would receive some serious upgrades.
West Florence High School would have its portable classrooms converted into real ones.
A breezeway that connects the portable classrooms would be walled off into a hallway, providing the school extra security. Two classrooms would be added.
Portable classrooms at South Florence High School would be converted into real ones, and 10 classrooms would be added onto Wilson High School.
Planners also call for new stadiums and gyms at all three schools.
District Chairman Barry Townsend said no costs have been provided for the proposals, and while the date of the referendum hasn't been set, he said it would likely be held in January.
He said several middle schools and an elementary school would be renovated as well, but the plans haven't been released yet.
