CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAM -- Superintendent David N. Thomas presented his proposed $62.2 million capital improvements program for the next five years, a building plan that proposes $34 million for a new high school in the Broad Run area by 1994 -- although the cost of that school has been questioned by members of both the School Board and the Board of Supervisors. Both boards must approve the school system's capital budget.
The School Board will hold a public hearing on the plan at 7 p.m. Tuesday in its offices at 102 North St., Leesburg. Those wishing to speak should call the above phone number.
The superintendent's plan also calls for conversion of the current Broad Run High School into a middle school by 1995 and construction of elementary schools in Ashburn Village in 1992 and eastern Loudoun in 1996. The site in eastern Loudoun is still undetermined.
The conversion of Broad Run to a middle school is expected to cost about $5.9 million, according to the building plan, and the Ashburn Village elementary school is expected to cost $7.95 million. The other elementary school is expected to cost $8.4 million.
The plan focuses on new building in the Ashburn area because that is where school planners expect growth of about 1,400 students, including 950 new elementary students, over the next five years. Planners told the School Board that current facilities will be sufficient for the Park View High School area of Sterling, where they expect moderate growth, the Loudoun County High School area of Leesburg and the Loudoun Valley High School area of Purcellville and points west, where they expect little or no growth.
