Member action needed on CCPS Budget
Covid19 is having a financial impact on Carroll. The school system is making hard decisions about where to put money and where to cut money. The school system is vital to the community, and frontline educators are vital to the school system. We have to speak out to ensure they are prioritized, to keep Carroll strong.

Dear Board of Education Members,
I’m an educator who works at [insert work location here]. We frontline staff are working harder than ever now, learning new ways to support our students with minimal training, having to teach ourselves new technologies.
The quality, commitment, and morale of our educators has never been more important than in this crisis. [If you wish, insert a sentence here about your family’s personal financial struggle or any thoughts you may have had about leaving either the profession or CCPS.] For the sake of our students and their families, who need a strong, vibrant school system to serve them through this hard time, I urge you to prioritize your frontline educators in next year’s budget.
