Guiding Principles

Carroll County Schools focus on student learning, growth and success as the foundation of achievement.

Students come first.

Students learn in different ways and at different rates.

Effective teachers have the greatest impact on learning.

Learning is a shared responsibility - school, home, and community - for which we are all accountable.

A safe, healthy, and positive environment for students, teachers, and staff affects achievement.

All students and employees are valuable and are treated with dignity and respect.

Continuous improvement efforts must be flexible, responsive, and aligned to meet the needs of our students, teachers, and community.

Community-based schools foster stakeholder engagement and loyalty.

Student success is necessary for economic growth and world readiness.
