MONROE - The Monroe school district plans to replace the high school track next summer and to wait until June 2017 before replacing sections of an elementary school's roof in order to take advantage of changes to the state's prevailing wage law. Tom Rufenacht, director of buildings and grounds, prioritizes the district's long-term maintenance plan that lists projects that should be completed within the next five years, assigning them a year in which to be completed. Projects slated for 2016-17 include replacing the track at Monroe High School, replacing a section of Parkside Elementary School's roof and replacing a tractor snow blower at Northside Elementary School.
