Maryland has provided more than $6.2 billion in funding to assist local education agencies with the construction of public school facilities,
as well as $368 million in other construction funding programs during the last three decades. State capital funding decisions for public
school construction have a direct impact on the location of residential development across Maryland.
In its role on the Interagency Committee on School Construction (IAC), the Maryland Department of Planning (Planning) aims to advance policies
that encourage local jurisdictions to construct and rehabilitate neighborhood schools. They serve as focal points in communities by promoting
shared uses, preservation of community identity and landmarks, and promote healthy, walkable communities. These interrelated set of policies link
school construction growth to smart growth, community revitalization and sustainable development goals.
The online Public School map application is designed to provide important information about schools in Maryland.
You can view the location of public schools as well as enrollment data for each Maryland's 24 jurisdictions (23 counties and Baltimore City).
Schools are classified by type (elementary, middle, high, multi, other, and no data).
Public school data was obtained from the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE
and each school was located on the map by Planning using MdProperty View geocode services. Data was assembled by MDP for statewide planning
purposes covering 2010-2011 and may not reflect the latest information. Please contact the local school system or the Maryland State Department of Education
for the most up-to-date information related to specific schools. Municipal borders and Priority Funding Area (PFA) overlays can be activated as needed.
