Capital Outlay Grant


Scotland County Schools received more than $1 million dollars through a Capital Outlay Grant from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI). The Capital Outlay Grant  totals $1,089,920 and  funds will be used to renovate the Scotland High School Auditorium. An updated auditorium will support the district’s focus on Arts as part of their STEAM ( Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) work, allow Scotland High School to add dance classes and provide an updated space for community organizations to use for performances and large gatherings. Also, the grant funding will assist the district with one of its Five-year Strategic Plan Goals – By 2026, SCS will complete 75% of the revised five-year facilities plan. 

SCS Superintendent Dr. Takeda LeGrand offered special thanks to our elected State Officials ( Senator Tom McInnis and Representative Garland Pierce) who supported funding for Need Based Capital Grants and the collaboration of our partners in education who made securing the grant possible: Scotland County Schools Board of Education; Scotland County Board of Commissioners; Mr.  Kevin Patterson and Mr. Jason Robinson (Scotland County Board of Commissioners Point of Contacts); and Dr. Michael Riles, Chief Accountability and Technology Officer (Scotland County Schools Point of Contact).
