September 2016

With another school year in session, the Lexington Police Department is working hard to educate citizens on proper School Zone Safety. Officers are monitoring traffic within the school zones and focused on educating and directing parents and guardians to the proper drop off, pickup and parking areas when traveling on and off of school campuses. This year also includes the addition of two new schools within town limits, as we recently annexed Meadow Glen Elementary and Meadow Glen Middle Schools. The Town now has three school resource officers dedicated to the five schools within our service area, helping to provide a safe and secure academic environment for our students. 

Council and I would like to congratulate Dr. Karen Woodward on her retirement from Lexington School District One after 15 years at the helm. Dr. Woodward was instrumental in bringing the district into the 21st century and making our school system one of the best in the state of South Carolina. 

Council and I would also like to welcome Dr. Greg Little to our Lexington School District One community, as the new Superintendent. Dr. Little most recently served as the superintendent of Mount Airy Schools in North Carolina. He is a graduate from UNC Wilmington and received his Doctor of Education from UNC Chapel Hill. Dr. Little will be charged with overseeing more than 25,000 students and 30 schools, all while continuing to ensure that every student achieves at the highest level. 

We look forward to another great school year in Lexington and wish all the students success this academic year!
