2013 Public Education Master Facilities Plan
In 2013, DME developed a multiyear Master Facilities Plan (MFP) for public education facilities in the District of Columbia. The MFP is a long-range strategy that describes how the District can allocate, use and improve school buildings to support high-quality teaching and learning in the District of Columbia. DME assembled a team of education and planning professionals to compile facilities data, engage the community, and devise a plan for allocating, modernizing, and maintaining school facilities. The MFP will be updated in December 2014.
The MFP provides the framework for DCPS' Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), which outlines DCPS' capital budget and construction program over a six-year period. DME works closely with DCPS and the Department of General Services (DGS) to develop the CIP. The CIP is updated annually and incorporated into the Mayor's District-wide capital budget, which is submitted to Council in the spring.
