Capital Improvement Project - Video Series - Phase I and II

One vision one goal one monticello

Narrator: Board President Stacey Sharoff

"Hi, I'm Stacey Sharoff, a proud graduate of the MCSD and your board president.

Our first priority is always the safety of our students and staff. Currently, there are numerous health and safety issues that need to be addressed throughout the district particularly at the high school level. Our roofs, boiler systems, electrical systems, heating and cooling systems and other areas are all in need of dire repair. Phase I of this capital improvement plan will first and foremost address all of these issues in order to keep our students safe.

We knew that we had to do something immediately when the building condition survey indicated that the cost of repairs alone were more than $100 million dollars. When we learned that the cost to repair AND update our district was similar to the amount it would cost to completely renovate these spaces, we knew we had to move forward and put this proposal before our voters.

If voters approve the plan on Dec. 19, the plan will be bonded out in two phases.

Phase I will include: extensive renovations to the high school, necessary repairs and upgrades to the middle school, and emergency repairs to our occupied elementary schools. These critical repairs will help to ensure the safety and functionality of all of the district’s buildings. The largest portion of Phase I funds are geared toward the gut renovation to the high school.

Phase II allows for funding to reopen the Duggan School, and substantial upgrades to all elementary buildings, including Duggan. In this phase, the bond will be divided amongst four schools, with all of them receiving large-scale overhaul.

Please keep an eye on our website and your mailboxes for more specific information about these changes."
