Priorities in the proposed 2011 Educational Facilities Master Plan

May 22, 2011

The Washington County Board of Education is scheduled to vote June 7 on whether to adopt the proposed 2011 Educational Facilities Master Plan.

The plan’s priorities are as follows:

  • Ruth Ann Monroe Primary, at the corner of Yale Drive and Mount Aetna Road, is scheduled to open in August.
  • Replacing Bester Elementary in Hagerstown’s South End. The school board still needs to adopt a final concept plan, with construction scheduled to begin during fiscal 2012-13 so the school can open in 2014.
  • A new “West City” elementary school that would consolidate the student populations at Winter Street Elementary, in Hagerstown’s West End, and Conococheague Elementary, west of Hagerstown. Scheduled to open in 2016.
  • Phase one of a new “South County” elementary. Scheduled to open in 2017.
  • A new “East City” high school scheduled to open in August 2020, a year later than previously planned.
  • Modernizing Sharpsburg Elementary. The work would be completed in 2019, two years earlier than previously planned.
  • Building an addition onto the new “South County” elementary. Scheduled to be finished in 2020.
  • Modernizing Boonsboro High School. Scheduled to be finished in 2022, a year later than previously planned.
  • Modernizing Fountaindale Elementary School in Hagerstown’s North End. Scheduled to be finished in 2022.
  • An addition to and renovation of E. Russell Hicks Middle School in Hagerstown’s South End. Scheduled to be finished in 2023.
  • A new “North County” elementary school scheduled to open in 2023.
