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.
