In June 2018, the Work Group on the Assessment and Funding of School Facilities was established (Chapter 14, Acts of 2018).
Following the adoption by the Interagency Commission on School Construction of educational facilities sufficiency standards and a facility condition index for Maryland public schools, an initial statewide facilities assessment using the sufficiency standards is to be completed by July 1, 2019. For school construction funding decisions, the Work Group is charged with determining how to prioritize the relative condition of public school facilities based on the sufficiency standards and condition index, as well as local priorities. Further, the Work Group will consider whether the State should provide funding incentives to local jurisdictions that reduce the total ownership cost of public school facilities.
