After two failed referendums and no resolution on the future of their facilities, a local school district has begun to revisit what they will do moving forward.
Monticello Schools are facing dealing with school buildings that are either 100 years old or close to it. With that in mind, Dr. Vic Zimmerman, Superintendent of Monticello Schools says they are investigating what they need to do to bring their current facilities up to 21st century learning standards with a new committee.
Dr. Zimmerman says their aging buildings have many challenges when discussing educating students in 2017. He explains the rooms are small and the infrastructure is not at the level they need.
Dr. Zimmerman believes the community wants improved facilities, but is not sure they've presented the right plan yet.
A new facility isn't 100-percent out of the question in the future for Monticello Schools but the Superintendent indicates it is something he feels the Board of Education might be hesitant to try out again.
