The Fairfax County School Board approved an annual update to the capital improvement program (CIP) that includes new school construction and/or repurposing, capacity enhancements, and renovations.

These projects are detailed in FCPS’ FY 2025-29 Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The CIP also illustrates FCPS’ alignment with the Fairfax County Joint Environmental Task Force’s (JET) goals with the inclusion of more Net-Zero Energy (NZE) building practices.

New construction of Dunn Loring Elementary School is designed to provide capacity in the Dunn Loring, Falls Church, and Tysons areas. Other projects include renovations at 18 elementary schools, two middle schools, and two high schools, as well as capacity enhancements at Justice High School. Information about all capital projects will be posted on project web pages on the FCPS website. 

Two amendments to the CIP were approved by the School Board for Priority Recommended Boundary Adjustments. These are to address overcrowding at Parklawn Elementary School and Coates Elementary School. More information, including timelines for engagement, will be shared with these communities as it is available.

FCPS capital projects are funded through Bond Referendums approved by county voters. Learn more about the FY2025-19 CIP update, current capital projects, and more on the FCPS website.
