FAIRFAX, VA. - Fairfax County Public Schools have big capital improvement plans: Billion dollar big.

Last week, the school system’s Capital Improvement Program was released, calling for a five-year, nearly $1.1 billion cash flow to cover a long list of projects. It also looked further out to a 10-year plan, with a price tag of $2.1 billion, to keep up with student growth in the county.

“Student membership has increased by 992 students from last year to this year. The highest increase was at the high school level,” said Jessica Gillis, Coordinator of Facilities Planning.
