A middle school under construction in Horry County, S.C., will have 48 classrooms, a gym, and a cafeteria, but no lockers.

Robert Ferris, the CEO of First Floor K-12 Solutions in Raleigh, N.C., says most schools the company is designing no longer have lockers. The firm is building five schools in the county.

School board member Holly Heniford said lockers are not as much in demand because with computers, students don't have to lug the books they had to carry in years past. All middle school students in Horry County get iPads.
