Business & Community


School/community partnerships are supportive, collaborative efforts created to achieve mutually agreed upon goals and activities intended to benefit students and ensure their success. Carroll County Public Schools encourages and supports business and community partnerships. The Office of Business and Community Partnerships brings schools, businesses and community organizations together in order to benefit our students. For partners, the benefits are immediate and long-term because an effective education system provides a strong foundation for economic success in our community.
