Purpose

To study all BCPS high schools and identify potential options and strategies for providing enough seats for growing enrollment. The options and strategies will be presented to the Board of Education. A complete timeline is available.

Background

BCPS hired Sage Policy Group, Inc. for the high school capacity study. High school overcrowding is expected to peak in the next decade.

This study is supported by the Board of Education of Baltimore County, Baltimore County Government, and Maryland legislators from Baltimore County.

We Need Your Input

Beginning in summer 2018, your input will help us develop a set of options and strategies for providing enough seats for growing enrollment throughout the system. Feel free to share the High School Capacity Study flyer.
