FY 2014 Educational Facilities Master Plan and Amendments to the FY 2013-2018 Capital Improvements Program
Montgomery County Public Schools
In November 1996, the voters of Montgomery County (Maryland) approved by referendum an amendment to the County Charter that changed the County Council's review and approval cycle of the six-year Capital Improvements Program (CIP) from an annual to biennial cycle. The referendum specified that in odd-numbered fiscal years (on-years) the County Council would conduct a full review of the six-year CIP and in even-numbered fiscal years (off-years), the County Council would only consider amendments to the adopted CIP. The Approved FY 2014 Capital Budget and Amendments to the FY 2013-2018 CIP provides the approved appropriation authority for funds needed to implement CIP projects during FY 2014 as well as amendments to the Adopted FY 2013-2018 CIP. This document contains the following sections: Chapter 1, "The Approved FY 2014 Capital Budget and Amendments to the FY 2013-2018 Capital Improvements Program (CIP)," is a review of the major factors that have influenced the development of approved projects to the FY 2014 Capital Budget and Amendments to the FY 2013-2018 CIP. This chapter includes a table summarizing approved Amendments to the FY 2013-2018 CIP. 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 six 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 indicating 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 approved 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 Amended FY 2013-2018 CIP. Montgomery County uses the PDFs as the official capital budget documentation for all county agencies. The following are appended: (1) Projected Enrollment; (2) Special Program Enrollment; (3) School Enrollment and Capacity; (4) Relocatable Classrooms Placements; (5) Modernization Schedule for Assessed Schools; (6) Assessing Schools for Modernization; (7) Restroom Renovations Schedule; (8) Head Start and Prekindergarten Locations; (9) Growth Policy; (10) State and Local Capacities Table; (11) Reopened Schools; (12) Closed Schools; (13) Catchment Area Maps; (14) Political District Maps and Tables; (15) Priority Funding Areas and Hot Spots; (16) Land Use, Growth Policy, and MCPS Enrollment Forecasting; (17) Capacity Calculation; (18) Planned Life-cycle Asset Replacement (PLAR) Projects; (19) Special Education Program Descriptions; (20) Long-range Facilities Planning Policy and Interim Regulation; (21) Quality Integrated Education Policy; (22) Sustaining and Modernizing Montgomery County Public Schools Facilities Policy; (23) Transfer of Students Policy; and (24) Student Transportation Policy.
