County Trivia: When Were Maryland’s Schools Built?

MACo County Trivia

April 28th marked the first meeting of the 21st Century School Facilities Commission

Maryland counties partner with the state to build and renovate K-12 schools for public school students. In 2016, county governments allocated more than $1 billion of their combined capital budgets to K-12 education while the state exceeded its goal of providing $250 million to the annual school capital improvement program.
