Purpose

Over the next decade, the Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) faces a shortage of seats for its high school students.  The objective of this survey is to collect information regarding people’s preferences regarding how future capacity needs should be met.

The questions in this survey will help guide the study team, led by Sage Policy Group, Inc. (Sage), in the development of options and strategies for addressing growing enrollment.    All data collected from individual surveys will be treated as confidential.  We thank you in advance for participating in this future-shaping survey.
Background

High school enrollment is projected to peak over the next decade creating overcrowding and seat deficits systemwide.  The largest seat need will be in the Southeast Region followed by the Northeast and Central Regions.  The map below shows the peak utilization over the next decade.
