by Madison White Franks 

KILMARNOCK — The Lancaster school board on April 26 voted to accept and move forward on recommendations from the ad hoc school facilities committee to build a new middle and high school and renovate the current middle school to become the elementary school.

The school board also approved motions to request the board of supervisors:

  • Impose  a 1-cent tax increase to help pay for the project.
  • Allow the school board to apply for a $70 million United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development Loan, to pay for the project.
  • Authorize the school board to issue a request for proposal to cover the next phase of the process of improving school facilities.
