Carroll County Public Schools, the Maryland State Department of Education, and the TIES Center are partnering to improve inclusive practices for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities.
On Wednesday, March 11, 2020, Dr. Carol Williamson, Deputy State Superintendent for Teaching and Learning, and Ms. Marcella Franczkowski, Assistant State Superintendent for the Division of Early Intervention and Special Education Services, will visit Eldersburg Elementary School to see the work around TIES in action.
TIES stands for Increasing Time, Instructional Effectiveness, Engagement, and State Support for inclusive practices. The TIES Center is the national technical assistance center on inclusive practices and policies for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities. Maryland is the first state in the nation to partner with the TIES Center, and CCPS is one of two counties in Maryland participating in this very important work. Eldersburg Elementary School and North Carroll Middle School are the two demonstration sites.
