MONROE -- While it is the start of the weekend, the Monroe City School Board wasn't taking a day off Saturday.
Most of them gathered for a school board retreat at their administration building Saturday morning, discussing a number of issues facing the district.
School board members talked about landscaping for the facilities that need it, renovations to Wossman and Neville high schools and even what to do about a rise in school bus accidents.
"A lot of our wrecks that we've had are minor accidents and have been somewhere around right in here. There's a tremendous bottleneck up in here," School Board Vice President Mickey Traweek said. "I just think that if we could have a more efficient facility right there at the end of Century Boulevard, Century Drive."
School board members also talked about bolstering the robotics program at Carroll Junior High School and renovating the band room at Carroll High Shool.
