On May 5th current Carroll County Board of Education member Tara Battaglia posted the following statement and images relating to the current proposed budget:
There is a public hearing May 10th regarding funding for the County. Carroll County Public Schools needs and should be 50% of the County budget! CCPS is the largest employer in Carroll County! Our teachers and our staff should be receiving proper salaries, and the funding is needed to do that from the Commissioners! Send emails to the Commissioners! Show up and let the Commissioners know CCPS should be receiving 50% of the budget! 46% is not 50%!
