A presentation, led by Assistant Superintendent of Operations Cornell S. Brown, will include the proposed final budget which includes the funding requirements for future and currently planned projects based on the already approved 2012 Educational Facilities Master Plan.
One main debate on the Capital Improvement Program includes the possible replacements of Havre de Grace High School and Youth's Benefit Elementary School. Both communities have argued that their schools are falling apart structually and falling behind technologically.
The proposed FY14 Capital Improvement Program will be voted on at the Board of Education meeting beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 24.
The Harford County Board of Education will also come to decisions on contract awards for three different projects. The new electronic scoreboard at Aberdeen High School and the replacement of the HVAC systems at both Magnolia Middle School and North Harford Elementary School.
The rebuilding plan for Aberdeen High School in 2004 did not include a scoreboard or football facility upgrades.
A donation by Erin and E.J. Henderson—Aberdeen alums and current NFL linebackers—for the scoreboard was rejected by the board last year. The Hendersons later said they had also planned to help fund a new synthetic playing field at their alma mater.
The school is seeking an estimated $45,000 for the project.
