Mardela Middle & High Improvement Project Moving Forward

Posted: Updated:

MARDELA SPRINGS, Md.- Wicomico County Executive Bob Culver and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Donna C. Hanlin on Wednesday announced that funding for the Mardela Middle & High School improvement project will be part of the county executive’s proposed 2020 capital budget.

At a meeting held Tuesday, May 14, teams for the school system and
county agreed on details to move the Mardela project forward. This new development came after Culver in late April decided to cut funding for renovations to Mardela Middle & High School in the 2020 capital improvement budget. 

During Tuesday's meeting, Culver agreed to shift $291,000 allocated in the FY2020 capital budget for the Westside Intermediate roof project to the Mardela Middle and High improvement project. Official noted that the state portion of the Westside intermediate roof project was not funded, so county funding will not be needed until a future year.

This initial funding from the county will enable the school system to begin
development of an educational specification plan for the Mardela project. Officials said this educational specification plan is an important step forward in the improvement project for Mardela Middle & High School, as it will be a key part of the school system’s submission to the state for planning approval for the project.

Subsequent funding for the Mardela project will be determined as information is forthcoming from the state.
