Capital Improvement Program (CIP)
Each year the Department of Capital Programs develops a proposed annual 6-year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) and presents it to the Board of Education for approval. The CIP includes detailed capital project funding requests for the upcoming Fiscal Year (FY) beginning July1st as well as 5 progressive years of planned capital projects. Capital projects are prioritized based on school facilities needs as justified in the Board approved  FY17 Educational Facilities Master Plan. The CIP and EFMP are both fully aligned with the PGCPS academic mission and goals as stated in the PGCPS Strategic Plan and the 2015 PGCPS 5-Year Bridge to Excellence (BTE) Comprehensive Master Plan .  


CIP Timeline and Process
The proposed CIP is generally presented to the Board of Education at one of their first August meetings of the School Year (SY). The plan is introduced as a 'first reader' initially, then followed by a Public Hearing where community input can be heard. A 'second reader' is scheduled following the public hearing where the plan is scheduled for action by the Board. Once approved, the plan is forwarded to the County Council and the County Executive for funding review as well as to the State of Maryland. Both the County and the State review the details of the plan in anticipation of approving capital funds in the Spring. During the time of review, community stakeholders have many opportunities to voice their opinions regarding the various capital projects contained in the plan.  


Opportunities for Community Involvement 



The current schedule of Board Meetings related to the proposed FY19 CIP is as follows:
