Description

The facility planning process provides preliminary programs of requirements (PORs), cost estimates, and budget documentation for selected projects. This project serves as the transition stage from the master plan or conceptual stage to inclusion of a stand-alone project in the CIP. There is a continuing need for the development of accurate cost estimates and an exploration of alternatives for proposed projects. Implementation of the facility planning process results in realistic cost estimates, fewer and less significant cost overruns, fewer project delays, and improved life-cycle costing of projects. In the past, this project was funded solely by current revenue; however, as a result of new environmental regulation changes, design of site development concept plans must be done during the facility planning phase in order to obtain necessary site permits in time for the construction phase. Therefore, the funding sources shown on this PDF reflect the appropriate portions for both current revenue and GO bonds. An FY 2017 appropriation was approved for the preplanning for additions at one elementary school, one middle school, and two high schools, as well as preplanning for revitalization/expansions at four elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. An FY 2018 appropriation was approved for the preplanning of five revitalization/expansion projects and the preplanning for an addition project, a new elementary school, the relocation of an existing school, and the reopening of a former closed high school. An FY 2019 appropriation was approved for the preplanning of four addition projects, the reopening of a high school, and the opening of a new high school and new elementary school. Also, the appropriation will fund two work studies. One to develop long-term growth plans for each cluster in the school system and identify best practices in other jurisdictions to bring a national perspective on educational facility planning trends to MCPS. The second will evaluate MCPS enrollment forecasting methodology and identify best practices that can inform the MCPS approach to enrollment projections going forward. An FY 2020 appropriation and amendment to the adopted FY2019-2024 CIP was approved to fund for the pre-planning of four elementary school addition projects and two middle school addition projects. Also, the appropriation will fund the continuation of the work with external consultants on the new enrollment forecasting methodology and the development of strategic long-range growth managements plans for all clusters. An FY 2021 appropriation was approved for the pre-planning of three addition projects, as well as pre-planning for a number of Board of Education owned or Montgomery County owned facilities that were once former schools that could potentially address the overutilization systemwide in the future.
