FAA, Long-Range Educational Facilities Planning
About this Policy
Last revised: June 17, 2014
The Montgomery County Board of Education (Board) has a primary responsibility to plan for school facilities that address changing enrollment patterns and sustain high-quality educational programs in accordance with the policies of the Board. The Board fulfills this responsibility through the facilities planning process. Long-range educational facilities planning is essential to identify the infrastructure needed to ensure success for every student.
The Long-range Educational Facilities Planning (LREFP) policy guides the planning process. The process is designed to promote public understanding of planning for Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) and to ensure that there are sufficient opportunities for parents, students, staff, community members and organizations, local government agencies, and municipalities to identify and communicate their priorities and concerns to the superintendent of schools and the Board. LREFP will be in accordance with all federal, state, and local laws and regulations.
