Three Largest Maryland Counties Unite For Increased School Construction Funding

January 14, 2014, Annapolis, MD - Three Largest Maryland Counties Unite For Increased School Construction Funding; Prince George's County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III, Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett, and Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz along with General Assembly Members of "Big Three" Counties demonstrate need for more money for school construction from the Maryland General Assembly.

Each leader emphasized that these three districts would be an excellent place to start as the state looks at modernization and construction of Maryland 's schools and facilities. According to the executives, these three counties make up 44% of the state's student population and 46% of the students that participate in the state's Free and Reduced Price Meals (FARMS) program. In addition, the combined student enrollment in the three school districts is projected to increase by more than 30,000 students by 2021. See Press Release.
