The condition of Nitschmann Middle School in Bethlehem has been a problem for years, and the school board has been thinking of replacing it for about as long.
At the Facilities Committee meeting on Monday, Superintendent Joseph Roy introduced a plan to put the question to voters in 2014, with the new school to open in 2018, if voters approve it.

The district can't borrow that much money without exceeding the state's limit on annual property tax increases, according to The Express Times.
The district already renovated three of its four middle schools, with the 90-year-old Nitschmann on the list since 2008.
