As it figures out which high schools to rebuild and whether redistricting should happen, officials with Baltimore County Public Schools are conducting focus groups and have scheduled three public information sessions.

BCPS hired Sage Policy Group to conduct a high school capacity study to help guide its plans. When the school board approved the contract for the study, the timeline said the preliminary recommendations would be released in May 2018. But officials say that date has been moved back.

Projections that BCPS released earlier this year showed large increase in the student population of Towson High School.

The “Students Count” report from BCPS says that Towson High is projected to have 2,022 students in the year 2026; that’s 306 more students than last year’s projections showed for the same year, and would put Towson at 159 percent capacity given its current building.
