Superintendent’s CIP Release Set for Oct. 28
Superintendent of Schools Joshua P. Starr will release his recommended Capital Improvements Program (CIP) for the next six years on October 28, at noon, during a media event at Highland Elementary School, 3100 Medway Street, in Silver Spring.
A new CIP is approved every other year and includes school construction projects, as well as infrastructure improvements and technology investments the district will undertake in the coming years.
Starr’s recommended CIP for Fiscal Years 2015-2020 is expected to address significant space needs the district is experiencing due to dramatic enrollment growth. Since 2007, Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) has added 14,000 students, with most of that growth occurring in elementary schools. Over the next six years, MCPS expects enrollment to increase by another 11,000 students.
