New Aylor School Could Receive $7.5 M More in Funding

14 September 2018 News

In a Wednesday night meeting, Frederick County’s Board of Supervisors voted to set a public hearing on whether or not it should put $7.5 million more towards funding for the new Robert E. Aylor Middle School.

A replacement for the dilapidated Aylor Middle School, which has been plagued by elevated CO2 levels and is the district’s most expensive school to maintain, has been long overdue. Supervisors agreed in August to appropriate $45.5 million towards building the new school; however, their budget was met with concerns from the School Board that it would pay for a facility 20,000 square-feet less in size than needed to meet desired student capacity.

On Wednesday, Supervisor Shannon Trout made the motion to schedule a public hearing on whether more money should be allocated, citing those square footage concerns. Supervisors voted 4-3 to approve the matter, with those who objected noting that the county is already $126 million in debt. The hearing will take place on September 26th at 7 p.m. in the County Administration Building.
