The Parent Guides will educate, encourage, and empower parents who have children attending Carroll County Public Schools. To help all students achieve in Carroll County Public Schools, the Parent Guides will assist other parents within a regional school community to establish an environment of acceptance and respect.
The Parent Guides will use a variety of skills and strategies to foster a positive relationship between home and school, and to help parents understand and negotiate the school system’s policies and procedures. The Parent Guides will build a collaborative climate in which parents are comfortable sharing their concerns with school staff who are involved with their children’s educational success.
Operating as usual
Parent Guides for Carroll County Public Schools
Welcome to all our new followers! The Parent Guide program is still active and we are here to help.
Parent Guides are volunteers, trained by Carroll County Public
Schools (CCPS), to be a support for parents. This support can take many forms, from assistance in navigating the school system, to knowing where to get answers to questions, to helping to find the right person to solve a problem, or to just lend an ear.
Message us here or contact Judy Jones, Acting Supervisor of Equity and Community Outreach, at 410-386-1680 or [email protected] for help finding a parent guide.

We are very pleased with our Community Forum on Common Core State Standards and PARCC Assessments last night. We a had a large turnout from the community, the speakers gave very informative presentations, and the Q&A helped sort out the concerns of the public.
From the feedback we have been receiving, it was a very successful event. Look forward to more forums in the future.
