Frederick Schools Prepare for New Year, Overcrowding

12 August 2019 Frederick County News

Frederick County Public Schools will be welcoming nearly 14,000 students back to school this week.

FCPS will open its doors for the 2019-20 year on Thursday, August 15. In a release last week, Superintendent David Sovine said that the school system’s continued enrollment growth “will likely create some challenges again this year in terms of… overcrowding,” particularly at its three high schools, but that school officials were “committed to working to overcome these challenges.” Sovine went on to say that school safety and security will remain a point of focus for both Frederick County Public Schools and the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office this year and encouraged students, parents and staff to be vigilant and immediately report any concerns. Frederick County Public Schools Transportation Director John Grubbs is imploring drivers to slow down and pay close attention to their surroundings as the new school year begins, especially where buses are concerned.
