Evaluate options for improving facility conditions and providing capacity relief to high schools in the Southeast Area.


In 2020, Baltimore County Government and Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) commissioned a consultant to assess school facility needs and develop a long-range plan that addresses those needs and allocates resources equitably.  The resulting Multi-Year Improvement Plan for All Schools (MYIPAS) includes prioritized recommendations for needed capital improvements to each elementary, middle and high school.

High School recommendations were presented to the Baltimore County Board of Education and Baltimore County Council in September of 2020.  Based on these recommendations BCPS has initiated a study to evaluate options for improving facility conditions and providing capacity relief to high schools in the Southeast Area
