Board approves plan including two new schools


The Carroll County Board of Education approved yesterday a school construction plan and budget that includes a new elementary school, a new middle school and additions on the three high schools in the fast-growing South Carroll and Mount Airy.

The nearly $100 million, six-year plan also calls for equipment upgrades and expansion of career and technology programs. The addition of those priorities was a result of pleas from parents, teachers and school administrators at a public hearing last week on the construction plan, said Carroll interim School Superintendent Charles I. Ecker.

Also planned are a renovation of North Carroll Middle; a renovation of Charles Carroll Elementary to correct health and safety problems; and a full modernization and expansion of South Carroll High's main building, career and technology center, and fine arts facility.
