Background

FCPS began a feasibility study in August 2019 to determine the best way to modernize and expand Brunswick Elementary. The purpose of the study is to identify school renovation needs, additional space needs, options for meeting the needs, and estimated costs for each option. The study is expected to take two months in order to allow the Board of Education to make a recommendation in October 2019 in time to request funding for the design phase in the FY21 budget submission.

During the feasibility study, staff will work with a consultant to consider several options:

  • Renovate the current building
  • Renovate and expand the current building, or
  • Replace the current building with a larger new building.

Feasibility Study Process

FCPS has engaged Proffitt & Associates to lead the team in the feasibility study. This study is the first step in the process to develop a plan to address capacity and modernization needs of Brunswick Elementary School. The feasibility study will start in August 2019 and conclude in October 2019. The team will consider the existing building’s physical condition and the building’s ability to provide space for our current educational programs.

Community Engagement

The project manager will provide an overview of the study at the September 11 PTO meeting from 4-4:30 PM at the school. The school community is welcome to attend and ask questions. The final recommendations of the study are scheduled to be presented to the Board of Education at their meeting, anticipated to be Wednesday, October 30. The final report will be posted to the BoardDocs agenda item on or about Friday, October 25. The meeting will be televised on the FCPS cable channel 18 and will also be live-streamed on the FCPS TV webpage.
