Pub­lic In­vited to Pro­vide In­put about Fu­ture of BCPS Fa­cil­i­ties

The Dundalk Eagle - - REC COUNCIL NEWS -

BAL­TI­MORE COUNTY — Bal­ti­more County Pub­lic Schools and the Bal­ti­more County Gov­ern­ment in­vite the pub­lic to take a sur­vey and pro­vide pub­lic com­ment about school fa­cil­i­ties as part of the Multi-Year Improvemen­t Plan for All Schools (MYIPAS).

The pur­pose of MYIPAS is to de­velop a long-range plan for iden­ti­fy­ing and pri­or­i­tiz­ing cap­i­tal im­prove­ments to all schools.

“The peo­ple of Bal­ti­more County are our part­ners in progress and their voices are crit­i­cal to en­sur­ing that we cre­ate a long-term plan that best meets the needs of our com­mu­ni­ties,” said County Ex­ec­u­tive Johnny Ol­szewski.

“By work­ing to­gether, we can out­line a clear roadmap to pro­vide our stu­dents and ed­u­ca­tors with the safe, mod­ern learn­ing en­vi­ron­ments they need and deser ve.”

“I en­cour­age stu­dents, fam­i­lies, staff, and com­mu­nity mem­bers to be part of our legacy by guid­ing the plan for mod­ern­ized teach­ing and learn­ing spa­ces that will ben­e­fit gen­er­a­tions,” said BCPS Su­per­in­ten­dent Dr. Dar­ryl L. Wil­liams.

“The cur­rent cri­sis has only re­in­forced the many ways in which schools bring us to­gether. Now is the time to lend your voice and shape our fu­ture.”

The pub­lic in­put process be­gan in April 2020 with the for­ma­tion of fo­cus groups to eval­u­ate and dis­cuss three ar­eas: en­roll­ment pro­jec­tions, ca­pac­ity and uti­liza­tion; ed­u­ca­tional eq­uity and ad­e­quacy; and fa­cil­ity con­di­tion.

The en­tire com­mu­nity is in­vited to par­tic­i­pate in the MYIPAS Sur­vey through 11:59 p.m., July 15, 2020. Feed­back may also be pro­vided by com­plet­ing the on­line com­ment form.

All com­ments re­ceived are pub­lic record, and will be logged and posted to the Multi-Year Improvemen­t Plan for All Schools Web page, in­clud­ing names, but not e-mail ad­dresses. Per­sonal in­for­ma­tion should be avoided (e.g., phone num­bers, stu­dent names, etc.).

The MYIPAS will be com­pleted in two phases. Phase one will fo­cus on rec­om­men­da­tions for high schools. Phase two will fo­cus on rec­om­men­da­tions for el­e­men­tary and mid­dle schools.
