For the 2021-2022 school year, Carroll County Public Schools (CCPS) will offer full-time virtual program options for students from kindergarten to grade 12. The program is designed to meet continuing COVID-19 related concerns. Students will remain enrolled at their home school while participating in the virtual learning program.
Students will be provided a CCPS laptop to be used to engage in learning, however, no internet service will be provided by CCPS.
Students will be required to take all state and local assessments. CCPS will follow MSDE procedures and processes for state-wide assessments. This may require students to complete the assessments in-person in their home school building.
Students participating in the full-time virtual program are not eligible to participate in extra-curricular activities.
