The Monticello School district has for roughly a decade been seeking community support to update their facilities and construction of an approved project is underway.
Dr. Vic Zimmerman says they broke ground shortly after the school year concluded and he looks forward to progress this summer.
According to Dr. Zimmerman, the project will force them to be flexible as the addition and remodeling going on during the upcoming school year but he says there likely won't be an issue they can't handle.
This coming school year, there will be four portable classrooms in use and Dr. Zimmerman indicates classes will likely be shuffling in and out of those throughout the year as various classrooms get renovated.
Dr. Zimmerman also indicates upgrades to the classrooms include AC, new lighting or paint.
