Monroe Consolidated School
Proposed Secure Entryway Renovation Project
The School Entryway Committee believes this is a responsible compromise that balances budget, security and educational concerns for the Monroe Consolidated School. The entrance improvement options will also offer the added benefit of a small amount of additional educational space and better supporting spaces for students. We hope you will support our proposal in March 2023.

At the School Board meeting on 2/7/22, the Board voted to accept Trumbull-Nelson Construction Company as Construction Manager for the renovation project.
In April 2021 the Monroe School Board interviewed three architect firms and selected Banwell Architects out of Lebanon, NH, to move forward with bringing a plan to the Town of Monroe for a secure entryway for the Monroe Consolidated School. The renovation committee will work with Banwell Architects to come up with a design for the secure entryway, to bring to the School Board for approval and then to the Town voters.
