Interim Superintendent to Release School Construction Plans TODAY

October 28, 2015

Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) Interim Superintendent Larry A. Bowers will release his Recommended Fiscal Year 2017 Capital Budget and the Fiscal Year 2017–2022 Capital Improvements Program (CIP) TODAY, October 28, 2015, during a media event at Seneca Valley High School in Germantown. A new CIP is approved every other year and includes school construction projects, as well as infrastructure improvements and other investments the district will undertake in the coming years.

Mr. Bowers’ recommended CIP is expected to address significant space needs the district is experiencing due to dramatic enrollment growth. Since 2007, MCPS has added 18,500 students, with most of that growth occurring in elementary schools. Over the next six years, MCPS expects enrollment to increase by another 10,000 students, with much of that growth to occur in secondary schools.  

WHAT: Release of Interim Superintendent’s Recommended Capital Improvements Program for Fiscal Years 2017-2022

WHEN: TODAY, October 28, 2015, at 11:30 a.m.

WHERE: Seneca Valley High School, 19410 Crystal Rock Drive, Germantown, MD 20874
