Monroe Demolition Underway

Work to demolish the former C.S. Monroe Technology Center in Leesburg, long the home of the school system’s vocational programs, has begun.

Heavy machinery was on site at the corner Catoctin Circle

and Childrens Center Road on Tuesday tearing down the 1977 building. It housed the technology center for 40 years, before those programs were moved to the new Academies of Loudoun.

It will be replaced by The North Star School, which will become the new home of Loudoun County Public Schools’ Alternative Education Program, currently housed at the Douglass School. North Star will also provide daytime and evening adult education programming.

The school system anticipates the new school will be open for the 2020-21 school year.
