Fund Old Mill School Construction

The schools in the Old Mill area have been in desperate need of rebuilding/reconstruction for decades. In 2006, the independent MGT study ranked Northeast High School, Severna Park High School and Old Mill High School as top priorities. Since that time, both Northeast and Severna Park have been completed, and an entirely new Crofton High School is under construction. Meanwhile, Old Mill has been left behind. In 2015, the Board of Education authorized another independent study which ranked Old Mill HS, both middle schools, and 3 elementary schools (Glen Burnie Park, Millersville, & Rippling Woods) in that area as top Phase 1 priorities with the Old Mill High School and middle schools to begin within 2-4 yrs. In September 2016, the Board of Education was presented with the Old Mill Complex Master Plan, which lays out four options for the restructuring/rebuilding of the Old Mill area schools (Option 1 was chosen). And yet, the funding previously included in the Board of Education’s draft FY18 was removed. Now the County Executive has proposed a FY19 budget that once again delays funding for Old Mill schools. Here we are 12 years after the 2006 MGT study and we are still waiting for funding. Each year, because the list of school construction projects are not fully funded by the County, we’re pushed off again and again. We have a completed Master Plan and have purchased the land, yet we’re still stalled and years away from the starting gate. It's time for the County Executive and County Council to Fund Old Mill School Construction!

Our students cannot afford to get behind in funding!

Las escuelas existentes en el área de Old Mill no han sido renovadas ni rehabilitadas hace décadas. En 2006, el MGT, un estudio independiente, priorizó la reconstrucción de Northeast High School, Severna Park High School y Old Mill High School. Desde entonces, se completó la renovación de Northeast y Severna Park, y se aprobó la nueva construcción de Crofton High School. Mientras tanto, se ha olvidado de las escuelas de Old Mill. En 2015, la Junta de Educación autorizó otro estudio independiente que priorizó de Primera Fase las escuelas de Old Mill High School, las escuelas medias y las tres escuelas primarias (Glen Burnie Park, Millersville, y Rippling Woods) con el comienzo de la renovación de Old Mill High School y de las escuelas medias en 2 a 4 años. En septiembre 2016, el Plan Magistral para Old Mill Complex fue presentado a la Junta de Educación, en el cual se daban cuatro opciones de la reconfiguración / reconstrucción de las escuelas de Old Mill. Sin embargo, aunque el borrador del presupuesto del Año Fiscal 2018 de la Junta de Educación sí incluyó fondos específicamente para este proyecto, estos ahora han sido quitados y postergados de nuevo. ¡Se pide que el Ejecutivo del Condado y el Concilio del Condado restauren los fondos para las escuelas de Old Mill!

¡No se debe permitir que les falten los fondos a nuestros estudiantes!
