Deputy Mayor Niles Releases 2014 Master Facilities Plan Annual Supplement
(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Education (DME) partnered with Department of General Services (DGS), DC Public School (DCPS), and the DC Public Charter School Board (PCSB) to release the 2014 Master Facilities Plan (MFP) Annual Supplement. An annual supplement to the MFP is required pursuant the “Comprehensive Planning and Utilization of School Facilities Act of 2014.”
The 2014 MFP Annual Supplement was publicly released March 4th, 2015 and includes the following facility data from DCPS and some from public charter schools:
• Facility utilization,
• Facility conditions,
• Facility needs,
• Public school enrollments and enrollment projections ,
• DCPS facility designation, and
• DCPS education plans for buildings categorized as under-utilized or over-utilized
“The release of the Master Facilities Plan (MFP) Annual Supplement is a critical step as we increase transparency of our public facility landscape,” said Deputy Mayor Niles. “Moving forward, this data will be a valuable resource for our school planning efforts.”
The 2014 MFP Annual Supplement establishes a process and timeline for collecting all public facility data. The report also serves as a data resource for the development of the Capital Improvement Plan for DCPS and provides insight into the potential use and availability of vacant DCPS buildings.
Within the next 30 days, the DME will release on its website any DCPS facility designated as excess which will be subject to the request for offer process. In addition, the PCSB, in partnership with the DME, will create a survey instrument to collect public charter facility data this summer, the results of which will be included in the 2015 MFP Annual Supplement.
