Description

The Blair Ewing Center was assessed as part of the FACT process during the 2010-2011 school year. To address facilities needs at this school, an FY 2013 appropriation for facility planning was approved in the Modifications to Holding, Special Education and Alternative Centers project for a feasibility study to identify improvements for this building. An FY 2015 appropriation was approved to begin planning the modifications to this building. While the planning funds remain on the schedule requested by the Board of Education, due to fiscal constraints, the construction funds were programmed one year later in the approved FY2015-2020 CIP. The Board of Education's requested FY 2015-2020 Amended CIP reinstated the construction schedule previously requested by the Board. Also, the Board of Education's request includes a scope change for the Blair Ewing Center. In order to provide the Alternative Education Programs (AEP) with a facility that will support the program and students, the Board's request relocated the AEP from the current site to the English Manor ES site. However, the County Council directed the Board to reevaluate the current Blair G. Ewing site, as well as another site deemed appropriate by the Board for the AEP. Subsequently, the Board directed MCPS staff to reevaluate the current Blair G. Ewing site, as well as other sites owned by the Board of Education. Therefore, the County Council did not approve the Board's request to accelerate the construction funds for this project, but instead kept this project on the approved schedule. The evaluation of the Blair G. Ewing site, as well as other sites owned by the Board of Education is still in progress. Therefore, the adopted FY 2017-2022 CIP includes a one year delay for this project. An FY 2018 appropriation will be requested for construction funds. This project is scheduled to be completed August 2019. On October 13, 2016, Supplement C - Superintendent's Recommendation for the Alternative Education Programs at the Blair G. Ewing Center, was released and included the recommendation that the Blair G. Ewing Center be relocated to the Rock Terrace School site in January 2020. Therefore, the Board of Education's Requested FY 2018 Capital Budget and Amendments to the FY 2017-2022 CIP includes an expenditure shift of one year for this project and it is anticipated that planning funds will be recommended as part of the FY 2019-2024 CIP. Also, the name of this project is changed to the Blair G. Ewing Center Relocation. The County Council, in the adopted FY 2018 Capital Budget and Amended FY2017-2022 CIP, approved the Board of Education's request. The Board of Education's requested FY 2019-2024 CIP included a one year expenditure shift of construction funding to align with the availability of the Rock Terrace facility, once the Rock Terrace School is relocated with the collocation of Tilden Middle School in September 2020. As part of the County Council's review of the FY 2019-2024 Amended CIP, the Board of Education was requested to provide a list of non-recommended reductions to align with the County Executive's recommended CIP. As a result, the construction funds included in this project were removed and future funding for this project will be considered as part of the next full CIP. Remaining project funding is not needed until an alternative approach to meeting these needs is developed.
