:: Southern Pines: Knollwood Tract — County commissioners have agreed to fully fund this 800-student campus on Camp Easter Road, with a $30 million bank loan. The school will draw students from Sandhills Farm Life and Vass-Lakeview. Proposed opening date: Aug. 2019

Progress on the following depends on the passage of a $123 bond referendum, which voters will decide in May. The referendum lets the county raise taxes to pay back the loan, if needed.

:: Southern Pines: Morganton Park North — Early designs are rolling in for the 800-student elementary school, which would replace Southern Pines Primary and Elementary. The school would be behind The Legends at Morganton apartment complex (hint: that’s near Famous Toastery and Char Bar No. 7). Proposed opening date: Aug. 2020

:: Aberdeen — Land has been purchased, using state lottery funds, for a new campus off N.C. 5 near Sand Pit Road. The school would replace both Aberdeen Primary and Aberdeen Elementary. Proposed opening date: Aug. 2020

:: Pinehurst — With little room to grow, the village of Pinehurst is weighing the possibility of moving students offsite while the current Pinehurst Elementary is torn down, and rebuilt. Proposed opening date: Aug. 2021
