The Community Advisory Council (CAC) was established by the Board of Education of Carroll County to serve as a forum for public concerns, advice, and communication to and from the Board.
Each school appoints a representative to serve a two-year term on the Council.

In addition to providing information to the Board, the CAC may be called upon by the Superintendent and/or Board of Education to make recommendations on matters related to the education of students in Carroll County Public Schools.

Annual Reports to the Board of Education:
Who Should Attend CAC Meetings?
Each school's PTA/PTO, in collaboration with the school principal, appoints a representative to attend CAC meetings and represent their school. If a school does not have a PTA or PTO (or other organized parent/ student/ teacher group), the school principal is responsible for appointing a representative. Other student and teacher stakeholder groups (i.e. Student Government Association) have an appointed representative as well.
Representatives are expected to report back to their school and share information with their school communities. Minutes from each CAC meeting, along with other CAC communications, are available for anyone to review.
How Do I Find Out Who Represents My School?
Please contact your school principal or PTA/PTO for the name and contact information for your school's representative.
Who Should I Contact to Learn More or Ask Questions?
Anyone with questions or seeking information may speak with their school principal. If you have additional questions or information to share with the CAC, please contact one of the following:
Carmen Shanholtz, CAC Chair
Carey Gaddis, Staff Liaison
CCPS Supervisor of Community and Media Relations
(410) 751-3020
