Capital Improvement Program (CIP)
The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is the plan of the Chief Executive Officer and the Board of Education to fund capital projects during the fiscal year covered by the capital budget and the succeeding five fiscal years. Through the CIP, educational facilities are planned, designed, renovated and constructed based on the prioritization of needs established in the Educational Facility Master Plan (EFMP).

 TIMELINE AND PROCESS OF THE CIP
The proposed CIP is generally presented to the Board of Education at one of their first August meetings of the School Year (SY). The plan is introduced as a 'First Reader' initially, then followed by a Public Hearing where community input can be heard. A 'Second Reader' is scheduled following the public hearing where the plan is scheduled for action by the Board. Once approved, the plan is forwarded to the County Council and the County Executive for funding review as well as to the State of Maryland. Both the County and the State review the details of the plan in anticipation of approving capital funds in the Spring. During the time of review, community stakeholders have many opportunities to voice their opinions regarding the various capital projects contained in the plan.
