FY 2012 Educational Facilities Master Plan and the Amended FY 2011-2016 Capital Improvements Program
Montgomery County Public Schools
The FY 2012 Educational Facilities Master Plan (Master Plan) and Amendments to the FY 2011-2016 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 FY 2013-1018 CIP in October 2011. The document contains the following sections. Chapter 1, "The County Council Adopted FY 2012 Capital Budget and Amendments to the FY 2011-2016 Capital Improvements Program (CIP)," is a review of the major factors that have influenced the development of the approved projects to the FY 2012 Capital Budget and Amendments to the FY 2011-2016 CIP. This chapter includes a table summarizing the recommended Amendments to the FY 2011-2016 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 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. Chapter 6, "Project Description Forms," contain the individual MCPS Project Description Forms (PDFs) adopted by the County Council for the FY 2011-2016 CIP. Montgomery County uses the PDFs as the official capital budget documentation for all county agencies. Several appendices, at the end of the document, contain information on a variety of topics including enrollment information, state-rated capacities, Board of Education policies, modernization schedules, available school sites, closed schools and their current use, and relocatable classroom placements. Also included are maps for identifying Board of Education, council manic, and legislative election districts.
