Northwest Economic and Residential Forecast Study Report, July 2012

This study is an analysis of future economic and demographic conditions in the Northwest Planning Region that may impact residential patterns and enrollment growth beyond what is captured in current BCPS projection methodology.  BCPS hired Sage Policy Group Inc. and Cropper GIS to study accomplishes the following objectives:

  • Reviews and validates BCPS projection methodology;
  • Delivers data regarding variables that may impact BCPS projections;
  • Analyzes the implications of these variables, and quantifies their potential impact;
  • Identifies and explores growth management options and strategies for the short, mid-, and long terms by community and school clusters; and
  • Produces analytical findings regarding expected growth and enrollment management for the area that will support planning efforts over the next five to seven years.

Student Yield Factors (Updated October 2017)

In accordance with the Baltimore County Adequate Public Facilities Ordinance, the Office of Strategic Planning provides pupil yield factors to the Baltimore County Office of Planning.  Yield factors are ratios that indicate the expected number of students a residential development will likely generate over time.  Planners and developers use our yield factors when filing plans with the Baltimore County Office of Planning.  Yield factors are specific to elementary, middle, and high school students, as well as to housing type, tenure (rent vs. own) and Baltimore County election district.  Yield factors are not time-dependant, as a number of factors ranging from market value to construction delays can influence how slowly or quickly a development will be constructed, and the rate it will produce school-aged children. 

Southeast Area Facility Utilization Study, 2008

In 2008, the Office of Strategic Planning conducted a study regarding potential future planning initiatives in the Southeast Administrative Area.  The committee included administrators and stakeholders from schools throughout the area, and concluded in a community forum to garner input from the public.  The background data and the community forum results are included here.
