Community Meeting Agenda
Westminster, MD
10/25/2017 10:45 AM

As previously announced, Carroll County Public Schools will hold a community meeting on Tuesday, November 14, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. in the auditorium of Winters Mill High School, located at 560 Gorsuch Road in Westminster. The purpose of the meeting is to receive input on two major initiatives – the Strategic Improvement Plan and Redistricting and Facilities Utilization.  This is not a regular Board of Education Town Meeting with citizen participation.  However, it is a facilitated forum to collect public feedback using the facility utilization survey as a guide. Facilitators will coordinate input from the community as outlined below.  Board members will not be in attendance.


The agenda for the evening is as follows:


Strategic Planning

A staff facilitator will review the Board of Education’s proposed Strategic Pillars and Indicators and request feedback on their current strengths and weaknesses, as well as opportunities that may support the school system and threats that may impede future success.

The Board members have identified the following Pillars to establish the foundation for the next strategic plan:

  • Provide Multiple Pathway Opportunities for Student Success
  • Strengthen Productive Family and Community Partnerships
  • Develop and Support a Successful Workforce
  • Establish Safe, Secure, Healthy, and Modern Learning Environments.


Redistricting and Facilities Utilization

A contracted facilitator will work with participants to collect input on topics related to redistricting/facilities utilization. The survey is available online through October 31st at:

The input from this public meeting will be combined with online survey results and the response from other focus groups. The feedback will help the Board members set the process and parameters to be used in making decisions, as well as the factors to be considered. The Board of Education is scheduled to meet on December 6, 2017, at 4:00 p.m. to review the feedback and determine the next steps in the process.
