Dear Carrollton Community,
As we head into a new year, I thought I would give you an update about how our district is doing.
I often mention our finances in my articles so I will only touch on them this time. About 4 years ago, we were down 100 students from the previous year and a lot of serious cuts had to be made. These cuts included laying off some teachers, administrators, and cutting some programs.
However, this year, we now have more teachers than before the cuts that were made four years ago. All but one program has been brought back that was cut and that will return next fall.
We now offer more specials classes than any other district in the county such as art, Spanish, technology, PE, and music in our elementary school. We have brought in more money than we have had to spend for the last two years in a row and I expect that to occur again this year.
Enrollment is at the highest level that it has been in a long time. For the first time we are closed for school of choice in all buildings for second semester except at Omni.
