The new Claxton Elementary School’s construction may be completed by July 2026, officials say.
Anderson County Director of Schools Tim Parrott gave that date during a meeting of the county Board of Education on Feb. 6.
He discussed it an interview afterward. Parrott said he hoped to get the project put out for bids by late November. The new school will be at 105 Fellowship Lane in Powell.
Parrott said the current school, at 2218 Clinton Highway in Powell, is old and has safety issues.
“I think this is going to be something that community’s needed for a long time,” he said.
He said the school system was looking to have the school STEM certified, a certification that involves methods of teaching science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The contract went to the Anderson County Purchasing Committee on Monday, and that meeting’s agenda laid out some of the new school’s features.
It will be about 124,000 square feet and include four classrooms each for kindergarten through fifth grade. along with other facilities.
