$40 Million School Will More than Double Student Capacity

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Baltimore County Schools Superintendent Dr. S. Dallas Dance celebrated the start of construction of a replacement school for the outdated and overcrowded Lansdowne Elementary School this morning. A lively crowd of students, staff and community leaders applauded the ceremonial groundbreaking for the new $40 million school, which will increase capacity from 313 students to 700 and is scheduled to open to students for the 2018-2019 school year.

“We are delighted to break ground on a brand new Lansdowne Elementary School, which will meet Baltimore County’s growing enrollment needs while providing a modern learning environment to provide our students with the tools they need to succeed,” said County Executive Kamenetz. “In keeping with our 10-year, $1.3 billion Schools for Our Future program, the largest of its kind in the state's history, we are in the final stages of building 16 new schools, 12 additions and seven major renovations.”

“This is an exciting step forward for the entire Lansdowne community,” said Dr. Dance. “This spacious, modern new schoolhouse will offer students a vibrant educational setting that will empower them to grow and succeed.”
