Board of Education Approves $1.83 Billion Capital Improvements Program
The Montgomery County Board of Education has unanimously approved a $1.83 billion six-year Capital Improvements Program (CIP) request for Montgomery County Public Schools that will help ease overcrowding caused by years of rapid enrollment growth and address aging facilities. The CIP includes 30 new capacity projects.
For the 2017-2018 school year, enrollment is 161,546 students, a one-year increase of 2,536 students. Enrollment has increased by approximately 24,000 students over the last 10 years.
Additionally, the Board selected a boundary plan for a new elementary school in the Richard Montgomery cluster. The school would open in the fall of 2018.
