Monroe Local School District Facilities Master Plan
The Monroe Local School district and community began a process in 2009 to evaluate the condition of the existing school facilities and prepare a long term facility master plan to accommodate growing enrollment. The Ohio School Facility Commission evaluated district facilities in 2009 that at the time included the Main Campus, Primary School and Lemon Monroe HS.
In 2013 the Board of Education formed the Facility Advisory Team, a sub-committee of community volunteers,to evaluate the district enrollment projections, facility needs, and provide input to the board on the facility master plan.
In 2015 the Facility Advisory team made a few recommendations:
- Demolish the Lemon-Monroe HS building and stadium
- Secure operating funds at the expiration of the 5 year emergency levy
- Move forward with State partnership to build a school building
Since the original Facility Advisory Team recommendations, the Board of Education has completed the first two items (demolishing the LMHS building and passing an operating levy). The Facility Advisory Team has continued to meet to review factors impacting the facility master plan. The Ohio Facilities Construction Commission has committed 49% co-funding for a school construction project to be considered by voters at a future date.
The Board of Education had a community survey completed and recently has held multiple work sessions and community input forums to share information on the facility master planning process as well as receive feedback directly from the community members.
