With the support of the Board of Education of Baltimore County, Baltimore County government, and the state delegation, Baltimore County Public Schools is in the midst of a $1.3 billion capital plan, Schools for Our Future. This initiative will add seats to address increasing enrollment and improve existing facilities.

The construction of a new Northeast-area elementary school is underway, and the school is scheduled to open in September 2018. Since Sept. 6, 2017, a committee of parents, community members, school officials, and representatives of the new Northeast area elementary school community has reviewed a variety of boundary options.

The committee will use input from the public information session and from the online survey to help make a boundary change recommendation to the Board of Education on Feb. 6, 2018.
