Comprehensive Educational Facilities Master Plan (CEFMP)

The Comprehensive Educational Facilities Master Plan (CEFMP) serves as a document and a process for City Schools. As a resource document, the 2022 Baltimore City Publics Schools’ CEFMP contains both educational and community related elements that impact facility usage. Some of the major topics include long range facilities planning policies and regulations, community demographic and socioeconomic analyses, and projected student enrollment and building util

The CEFMP is developed with the participation, contributions, and input of many departments/entities within and outside of City Schools. It provides administrators, teachers, community representatives, City and State staff, and elected officials with a reference to assess future facility needs, determine project priorities, and establish a framework for decision-making and/or policy development pertaining to City Schools facilities. It also identifies current and future facility needs and provides a long-range perspective for future facility challenges.
