The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Education (DME) is developing the DC Public Education Master Facilities Plan 2018 (MFP), a forward-looking, comprehensive document that is required under DC Code § 38-2803. The MFP provides an opportunity to inform strategic and sustainable facilities management and long-term planning for DCPS, charter LEAs, city agencies, and others. The MFP will use population forecasts, enrollment projections, utilization analyses, and facility data to better understand the current landscape of the District's public school facilities, as well as the public education facilities needs over the next decade. The DME expects the MFP to be released the fall of 2018 (revised from being released the summer of 2018).
DME has contracted with AECOM to produce the MFP. This involves engaging with community and education stakeholders, performing the analyses, and providing recommendations. AECOM and Miramar Ponte Mellor DC have extensive, nationwide public education facilities planning experience and specialize in assisting school systems maximize the contribution of real estate holdings to institutional and academic goals and objectives.
Feedback is also encouraged outside of the meetings. Contact [email protected] with additional questions or concerns about the MFP.
