The Lumpkin County Board of Education approved the Capital Outlay Project Application submitted to the board during the Regular Session on Monday, September 10.
According to the Lumpkin County School System website, Superintendent, Dr. Robert Brown, submitted a recommendation, which states, “making [an] application for funds to construct a JROTC/Science facility with the Georgia Department of Education for State Capital Outlay funds as earned for Lumpkin County in the amount of $595,183”
The board also decided to make the Science wing of the new facility two-stories instead of one, with two new Science classrooms. The board also found a way to save building costs by designing access to the second level either via the stairs or elevator that was included in the previous blueprints, instead of installing a second elevator.
