  • Williams retires after three decades of service

    A school district is like an iceberg. Some parts are visible — touchdowns, report cards and playgrounds — while other parts are invisible — program design and planning, curriculum development, assessment management and data analysis.

  • Four schools get upgrades of $254,305

    The Carroll County Board of Education approved $254,305 in capital projects for four of the district’s properties at the Nov. 20 meeting.

    The largest of the projects is to replace some of the HVAC at the Area Technology Center. The board voted to accept $99,724 bid by ACCO to remove the rooftop units for the classroom wing and route ductwork that will connect the wing to the large unit installed two years ago. Curell said the unit is large enough to handle the duct work and there will be quite the energy savings.
