The Albemarle School Board has voiced interest in a more aggressive capital improvements program. That could mean additional capacity for some county schools. Other schools could be in line for modernization, even if they don’t get extra capacity.

The school board will discuss capital improvements later in the year with the Albemarle Supervisors.
