Every two years, the School Board adopts a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) that addresses APS capital needs—investments needed to improve or enhance the infrastructure of our schools—over the next ten years. The CIP includes major capital projects, such as new schools and school additions, as well as major maintenance and minor construction projects. In June 2020, due to budgetary pressures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the School Board, in conjunction with the County Board, pivoted away from preparing a ten-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) and, instead, developed a one-year CIP.
This year, the School Board has returned to a 10-year FY 2023-2032 CIP.
Superintendent’s Proposed FY 2023-32 CIP
This year’s CIP prioritizes an annual and consistent investment to improve and upgrade existing APS infrastructure. In addition, it builds a new facility to serve full-time Arlington Career Center students and students from across all APS high schools. The FY 2023-32 CIP totals $388.23 with 55% of the cost funding improvements to existing APS facilities and the remaining 45% funding the Arlington Career Center Project.
