Frederick High School Renovation/Modernization
Frederick High School was initially constructed in 1939 with additions in 1955, 1967, 1977 and 1980. Approximately one third of the building was renovated in 1977. While a few systemic improvements have been made to the school such as roof repairs, no other significant renovations have occurred in this building in almost 35 years.
The Board of Education has identified the modernization of older schools as a priority in the capital improvement program. A recent facility assessment study evaluated the physical condition of our schools, as well as the ability to provide the current required curriculum. Frederick High was ranked highest in priority for high schools needing a complete renovation/modernization.
Throughout the entire project, FCPS will work closely with the community to not only provide detailed information and regular updates on the project, but also to gather input and ideas. The school system is also planning a range of activities to work with the community.
Share Your Stuff!
The school system's approach to community engagement is structured to not only effectively disseminate information but also to bring the community together to provide an opportunity to share their ideas and unique perspectives. The use of social media such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr creates mechanisms for effective interaction, which, in turn, will help make the community an integral part of the larger planning process.
