The Clasrksburg Master Plan, approved in 1994, allows for the potential development of 15,000 housing units. Development of this community resulted in the formation of a new cluster of schools. Enrollment projections at Rocky Hill Middle School continue to increase dramatically throughout the FY 2011-2016 six-year CIP. This continued growth justifies the need for the opening of another middle school to serve the Clarksburg/Damascus service areas. Rocky Hill Middle School has a program capacity for 939 students. Enrollment is expected to reach 1,411 students by the 2015-2016 school year. A feasibility study was conducted in FY 2009 to determine the cost and scope of the project. The proposed middle school will have a program capacity of 988. Due to fiscal constraints, this project was delayed one year in the adopted FY 2013-2018 CIP. An FY 2013 appropriation was approved to begin planning this new middle school. An FY 2015 appropriation was approved for construction funds. This project is now scheduled to be completed by August 2016.
