MCPS currently has a total of 498 relocatable classrooms. Of the 498 relocatables, 382 are used to address over utilization at various schools throughout the system. The balance, 116 relocatables, are used at schools undergoing construction projects on-site, or at holding schools, or for other uses countywide.
