Lexington One begins zoning process for
Deerfield Elementary School
At the October 15, 2013 regular monthly meeting of the Lexington County
School District One Board of Trustees, the board heard administrators’
recommendations for attendance zones for Deerfield Elementary School.
Deerfield Elementary, currently under construction on Longs Pond Road in
Lexington, was designed with a focus on the future.
Deerfield Elementary’s design serves as a prototype supporting
competency-based learning. When it opens its doors to students in August
2014, classrooms will be equipped with flexible furniture. Teachers and
students can move, rearrange and repurpose this flexible furniture for any
type of instructional interaction. A variety of learning spaces at the
school will allow for collaboration, hands-on project work, and individual,
small and large group instruction.
Corridors are designed with alcoves for additional work spaces. Soft seating
will fill the corridors and digital Learning Commons, while demonstration
classrooms with glass walls will provide educators across the state an
opportunity for classroom observation.
The proposed attendance zone for Deerfield Elementary School alters the
attendance lines of Carolina Springs Elementary, Pleasant Hill Elementary
and Red Bank Elementary schools. In other words, some children who attend
these schools this year may attend a different school after the new
attendance lines go into effect.
Carolina Springs Elementary currently houses 978 students, Pleasant Hill
Elementary houses 948 and Red Bank Elementary houses 660 students. If no
fifth-graders elect to stay at their current schools by grandfathering,
after rezoning, CSES is projected to have 649 students, DES 464, PHES 689
and RBES 545.
The district will hold three public meetings so that the public can hear a
formal presentation of the proposed attendance lines and review maps of the
proposed attendance lines. There will be a formal presentation at 6
District staff will stay, however, until 7:30 p.m. to answer questions.
Parents can come to any of these meetings and do not have to come to the one
at their child’s school. The same information will be provided at all three
The meetings will take place at 6 p.m. on:
28, 2013, in Pleasant Hill Elementary School’s cafeteria
