MONTICELLO, Ill. (WCIA) – One year after voters approved a multi-million dollar plan to renovate schools, the school district says it’s within weeks of breaking ground.

The superintendent of Monticello Schools, Vic Zimmerman, says by mid-summer…you’ll be seeing a lot of changes.

In May, construction will start on the high school’s multipurpose gym, classroom addition, and auditorium.

The gym and classroom addition should be done in July.

Also in July, the old Washington school will be torn down…to make way for renovations to the grade school.

Before the school district gets to all that though, crews need to go through and do asbestos abatement. That’s what’s happening in the meantime.
