At the March 20, 2014 meeting of the Madison County Board of Education, Dr. David Copeland, Superintendent, read the following statement concerning the Land for the New High School in the Monrovia area:
"The board is diligently working toward the purchase of a location for a new high school in the Monrovia community. We have identified one parcel of property as the primary selection and are in the process of gathering information and negotiating an agreement for that site. As a precautionary measure, we have identified an additional parcel of land as a possible site. In an effort to ensure the best possible outcome, we are currently engaged in fact finding and viability studies on both parcels. Once we have determined the most viable, safest, and best-value site we will move forward. It is our goal to make the best possible decision for the students and families of Madison County."
