Description

MCPS contracted with an external entity to conduct full facility assessments of all schools during the spring and summer of 2018. This provided an important baseline of facility condition information across all school facilities to inform decision making about capital projects, systemic replacements, and other work needed to address facility infrastructure challenges. The Key Facility Indicator (KFI) data was compiled into a public facing website in the spring of 2019. As part of the amended FY 2019-2024 CIP, the superintendent identified the first set of schools to be included in the Major Capital Project project. At the elementary level, the first set of schools identified are Burnt Mills, South Lake, Woodlin, and Stonegate elementary schools. An FY 2021 appropriation was requested to begin the architectural planning and design for these first four projects. Burnt Mills, South Lake and Woodlin elementary schools have scheduled completion dates of August 2023 and Stonegate Elementary School has a scheduled completion date of January 2024. However, due to fiscal constraints, the County Council, in the adopted FY2021-2026 CIP, approved the completion dates for South Lake, Woodlin, and Stonegate elementary schools one year beyond the Board of Education's request, but maintained the planning funds. South Lake and Woodlin elementary schools had scheduled completion dates of August 2024 and Stonegate had a scheduled completion date of January 2025. An FY 2022 appropriation and amendment to the FY 2021-2026 CIP was approved to accelerate the completion dates of the four elementary school major capital projects to August 2023. The requested completion dates aligned with the Board of Education's request in the FY 2021-2026 CIP. Based on the request to accelerate the completion dates, an FY 2022 appropriation was approved for construction funds for all of the four elementary major capital projects. An FY 2022 supplemental appropriation and transfer of funds of $33.941 million in total for four elementary schools (Burnt Mills, South Lake, Stonegate, and Woodlin) was approved, in September 2021, for increases in construction costs. An FY 2022 supplemental appropriation of $16.725 in total for four elementary schools (Burnt Mills, South Lake, Stonegate, and Woodlin) was approved, in December 2021, to maximize state aid. An FY 2023 appropriation was approved for Burnt Mills, Stonegate, and Woodlin elementary schools to complete these projects. The approved appropriation also will fund architectural planning and design for Piney Branch ES, the next school identified for a major capital project. Construction funds will be considered in a future CIP, and therefore, the completion date for the Piney Branch ES project is to be determined. Due to construction delays and challenges, the approved FY2023-2028 amended CIP includes a six-month delay for Woodlin ES, now with a completion date of January 2024. As part of the requested FY2025-2030 CIP, the Piney Branch ES project is postponed until the Takoma Park Minor Master Plan Amendment process is complete. In addition, the requested CIP includes planning funds and placeholder construction funds for the following elementary schools--Cold Spring, Damascus, Twinbrook and Whetstone. An FY 2025 appropriation is requested to begin the planning and design for these four elementary school projects. Once planning is complete, and the scope and budget for these projects are determined, construction funds, along with completion dates, will be considered in a future CIP.
