Online survey available for Carroll facilities study

Carroll County Public Schools is in the midst of a comprehensive facilities study to determine whether the school system needs to close, combine or restructure schools and programs throughout the county.

The school system has hired MGT of America, Inc. to perform the study, which is now in the citizen input stage.

But through two community meetings at Francis Scott Key and North Carroll high schools, only about 20 residents have attended to weigh in with their opinions.

There are two more community meetings scheduled, and for those who can't attend a meeting, an online survey for the facilities study was launched Thursday.

Information from the online survey will be gathered and analyzed along with the data gathered during the community meeting sessions. The survey will be available through Nov. 1.

Additional "charettes" where residents can participate in an electronic survey and small group discussions are scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 22 at Century High School beginning at 7 p.m. and Wednesday, Oct. 23 at Westminster beginning at 7 p.m.
