A panel that’s explored the long-range needs for the Albemarle schools is warning the county needs to modernize many buildings. The group says the long term price-tag could exceed $212 million, and it wants to spend slightly more than half of that figure over the next five years. Rosalyn Schmitt of the Building Services office says many classrooms have a 20th century look. The county’s long range committee is also warning that several urban-ring elementary schools are strained by population growth. Chairman Dean Riddick (pictured left) wants the board to consider redistricting for some schools. Riddick, Tiffany Barber (pictured right) and other committee members will revisit these issues in August.
