RIGHT NOW IN THE FROST COMMUNITY


Did you buy your house so that your kids would go to Frost and Wootton? You are going to want to know what is going on……….


Did you miss the Wootton Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Testimony to the Board of Education on 11/8? Everyone is busy, but please read below and consider writing the BOE regarding Wootton cluster building issues, the email is boe@mcpsmd.org The message will go to all BOE members.


• Wootton was scheduled to be next high school for a renovation/expansion and was set to break ground in the summer of 2019. • Wootton was built in 1970 • It rests on the smallest footprint in the county yet has the fifth largest enrollment • The hallways and stairwells are unsafe due to overcrowding • students eat lunch sitting on the floors in hallways • there are not enough stalls in bathrooms • the ineffective HVAC system causes tremendous temperature swings throughout the building • the building does not meet ADA codes • the bus drop off/pick up is not safe as students • cars and buses all share the same narrow passage • a $300K mold remediation was done over the summer


MCPS did a feasibility study in 2016, which involved multiple meetings with the Wootton community, and the planning process was to kick off this past Spring. Just as the planning process was set to begin, the new MCPS Superintendent decided to change the formula for determining the order in which schools are renovated. Wootton now no longer has a project date, and timelines for improvements to both Cold Spring and Fallsmead have been impacted as well.


Here is a letter from the superintendent to the Board: CIPPolicyTransitionOct2017


Here is the Wootton Cluster pages from the CIP document: CIPPolicy-Wootton Cluster


You can find the full CIP document here: MCPS-CIPMaster
