At least three Richland County school districts are making substantial investments in the future of local education through projects to construct new buildings, renovate others, and build new athletic facilities.

Students in Shelby, Ontario, and Lexington will be benefiting from the changes over the coming years. Here are recent images from each project.

In Shelby, two such efforts are underway. The new Preschool through 8th grade building will house 1500 students and will combine current enrollments at Auburn and Dowds Elementaries, Little Whippets Preschool, and Shelby Middle School. The building will stand two stories tall and house 155,000 square feet of space. It is scheduled to open in Fall 2022.

In Ontario, Ontario Middle Schools is getting a fresh look with new carpet and paint, among other changes.
