The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Board of Education heard an school expansion plan at its March 26 meeting that will affect two Lake Norman-area schools.

If approved, the plan would expand Davidson Elementary School to include kindergarten up to eighth grade. 

The plan also includes a proposal to create "new replacement schools for J.M. Alexander" Middle School, among others. 

The top 25 proposed projects will require $400 million in capital funding. They will also alleviate major areas of overcrowding, address aging facility issues and reduce the district’s use of mobiles to accommodate expected student enrollment growth of about 2 percent annually, according to a district news release. 

“CMS plans for the capital needs of the district over a 10-year horizon to help drive cost efficiencies,” said Board of Education Chairperson Mary McCray in a news release. “We are highlighting our top 25 capital projects because Mecklenburg county managers have indicated they will likely pursue a three year bond in the fall.”
