This project funds a comprehensive and ongoing plan to replace key facility and site components based on an inventory of their age and conditions. A comprehensive inventory of all such components has been assembled so that replacements can be anticipated and accomplished in a planned and orderly manner. Facility components included in this project are code corrections, physical education facility/field improvements, school facility exterior resurfacing, partitions, doors, lighting, media center security gates, bleachers, communication systems, and flooring. An FY 2013 appropriation was approved to fund capital projects that will address MCPS infrastructure. Projects include: exterior resurfacing, repair/replacement of partitions and doors, lighting upgrades/replacement, replacement of media center security gates, repair/replacement of bleachers, communication systems upgrades, and repair/replacement of various flooring. This project also funds playground equipment replacement, tennis court and running track renovations, and cafeteria equipment replacement. The County Council, in the adopted FY 2013-2018 CIP significantly reduced the expenditures requested by the Board of Education for this project for FY 2014 and beyond. An FY 2014 appropriation and amendment to the FY 2013-2018 CIP was requested to provide an additional $2.49 million above the adopted CIP to reinstate funds that were removed by the County Council during reconciliation in May 2012. However, the County Council, in the adopted FY 2013-2018 Amended CIP did not approved the $2.49 million amendment as requested by the Board. An FY 2013 supplemental approporiation of $3.1 million was approved through the state's ASP program and an FY 2013 supplemental appropriation of $2.0 million was approved through the sate's QZAB program. An FY 2015 appropriation was approved to reinstate funds that were removed by the County Council during the last full CIP approval process in order to address our aging infrastructure through the PLAR program. For a list of projects completed during the summer of 2013, see Appendix R of the FY 2015 Educational Facilities Master Plan.
