SOUTH FORSYTH -- In one of the fastest-growing counties in the region, one more school in Forsyth County was added to the list of campuses that are getting an upgrade.

A security access connector between the main classroom building and the gym and modifications to the media center was approved for Daves Creek Elementary School, located at 3740 Melody Mizer Lane, by the Forsyth County Board of Education at their monthly meeting on Tuesday.

Connecting the main building and gym will improve security for the students, according to the recommendation written by Bill McKnight, chief facilities officer for Forsyth County Schools.

Media center modifications will internally expand the learning commons area, the memo said.

A M Adams Building Corporation was the lowest bidder and was awarded the project for $324,000.

One other contractor offered to do the project for $442,500.

Improvements are expected to be completed by July 19.
