A local school district is looking into their facilities district wide, and will hear tonight, exactly how their aging facilities stack up to expectations.
For almost a year, the Monticello school district has been discussing and taking action on what the future of their facilities might look like. Superintendent of the Monticello district, Dr. Vic Zimmerman explains Monticello's school buildings are very old, yet very well kept. He says the school Board of Education is considering what the future could hold for renovations of those buildings, or even, new buildings.
Despite the age of their buildings, the district has been very diligent in keeping them well maintained. A facility study has been conducted on the district's buildings by an architecture firm, which will be reported on tonight at their monthly Board meeting.
The architects have toured the facilities and they will make notes of what else they find. Dr. Zimmerman says when they present to the board their findings, they will then compare what 21st Century facilities should be like.
The Board of Education in Monticello meets tonight at 6:45 and will hear from the architects about their findings in their studies of the buildings. After tonight's meeting, Board members will take a month to digest what they have heard and the Board will hope to discuss the future of the buildings in February or March.
