Description

High schools in the mid-county region will continue to be over capacity through the six-year planning period. Therefore, the Board of Education's requested FY 2019-2024 CIP included funding for a new high school in the mid-county region located on the Crown site in the City of Gaithersburg. An FY 2019 appropriation was requested to begin planning this new high school. Due to fiscal constraints, the County Council approved a one-year delay for this project. During the County Council's review of the FY 2019-2024 Amended CIP, the Council approved including the following language in this project to keep two clusters from going into housing moratoria in FY 2020: "Based on the Board of Education's proposed yearly spending in this project, the Council anticipates that Crown HS will open in September 2024. The new school will relieve overcrowding by at least 150 students at Quince Orchard HS and by at least 120 students at Richard Montgomery HS." An FY 2020 appropriation was approved for planning funds. Due to fiscal constraints, the County Council, in the adopted FY2021-2026 CIP delayed this project one year. An FY 2023 appropriation was requested to provide additional funding for this project to address increases in construction costs and for construction funds. While the County Council approved the additional expenditures for this project as requested by the Board of Education, due to fiscal constraints, the County Council delayed this project by one year in the adopted FY2023-2028 CIP. An FY 2024 appropriation will be requested for construction funds. This new high school is now scheduled to be completed August 2027.
