DESIGN UPDATES
In August, PGCPS issued a Notice to Proceed, the advancement of all six Blueprint School projects from Design Development (or 65% Construction Documents) to 95% Construction Documents, which are scheduled to be issued at the end of December 2021. Advanced designs for specialized spaces such as STEAM and science labs and media centers progressed. Additionally, exterior colors, inspired by nature, were explored and selected for each of the six schools.

COMMUNITY INVESTMENT
Learn about the Community Asset Program!
As part of the Blueprint Schools’ commitment to ensuring that each school reflects the dynamism and character of its surrounding community, the Blueprint Schools Community Asset Program (CAP) has been launched. CAP is an innovative and collaborative initiative developed to provide each school with personalized and unique assets.  

The CAP program will include six community investment projects (one per school) – led by the Project Planning Committees (PPCs)* and community stakeholders of each Blueprint School. Each CAP project will have its own share of funding from the project budget that can be supplemented by grants or other funding sources that may be available. Potential examples of these projects could be outdoor fitness equipment, public art, greenhouses, unique wayfinding signage, and/or community programming.  


Over the coming months, Blueprint Schools will work with the PPCs to shepherd these projects from ideas to implementation, thus creating dynamic enhancements for each of these state-of-the-art educational environments.
