FY 2007 Educational Facilities Master Plan and the FY 2007-2012 Capital Improvements Program
Montgomery County Public Schools
The FY 2007 Educational Facilities Master Plan (Master Plan) and FY 2007-2012 Capital Improvements Program (CIP) reflect the adopted actions of the Montgomery County (Maryland) Council and integrate the facilities planning process with the annual capital budget and the six-year CIP. The CIP is developed in accordance with the Board of Education Long-range Educational Facilities Planning Policy (FAA) and Regulation (FAA-RA). The Master Plan summarizes relevant capital and non-capital actions approved for the six-year CIP period. Cluster and school representatives will be providing issues that they feel should be addressed in the next CIP cycle. These requests will be shared with the superintendent and the Board of Education and will be considered during the development of the superintendent's recommendation for the Amendments to the FY 2007-2012 CIP in November 2006. This document contains the following sections: Chapter 1, "The Improved Capital Improvements," is a review of the major factors that have influenced the approval of the FY 2007 Capital Budget and the FY 2007-2012 CIP. This chapter includes a table summarizing the FY 2007-2012 CIP, as adopted by the County Council. Chapter 2, "The Planning Environment," describes the demographic, economic, and enrollment trends in Montgomery County that form the context for reviewing facility plans and addressing long-range system needs. Chapter 3, "Facility Planning Objectives," outlines seven facility planning objectives that guide the school system as it moves to accommodate enrollment growth and program changes. The objectives are discussed and placed in the context of the approved CIP actions. Chapter 4, "Approved Actions and Planning Issues," is arranged by high school cluster and high school consortium. This chapter provides maps depicting school boundaries and locations, a bar graph that indicates school utilization within each cluster, tables with enrollment projections, school demographic profiles, building room use, capacity data, and other facility information. Planning issues are identified, and adopted actions and recommended actions to this CIP are discussed. Chapter 5, "Countywide Projects," provides a brief summary description of the CIP projects that are programmed to meet the needs of many schools across the county. These projects involve multiyear plans with different schools scheduled each year. (Referred to as countywide projects). Chapter 6, "Project Description Forms," contain the individual MCPS Project Description Forms (PDFs) adopted by the County Council for the FY 2007-2012 CIP.
