Posted: Updated:
BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -

Bluffton is one step closer to getting to new schools

Beaufort County Board of Education approved, at their Monday night meeting,  the contract with Hite Associates to design and build two new schools.

The school are supposed to be a longterm solution to the town's over crowding issue.

The new elementary school, which will be on Davis Road,  could cost $23.4 million. The new high school will be in the town's New Riverside area, and could cost $42 million.

The district said they will use $25 million from a 2008 bond referendum, and the rest of the money will be borrowed from the state.  

Superintendent Jefferey Moss is expecting the schools to be open by 2015-16 school year.
