Welcome to the December edition of the Superintendent’s Monthly Update. Please take a moment to look at all of the exciting things that happened around the division this past month. May each of you have a wonderful holiday and new year.

Happy Friday, CCPS parents and guardians! Caroline County Public Schools is excited to learn about Governor Northam’s proposed financial support of public education. While his complete budget will not be released until December 18, we are working with numerous stakeholders to craft our needs based budget and prioritize the 58 budget requests that were submitted by schools and departments during the month of November.
Throughout the budget season, we are committed to keeping our staff and community abreast of budget developments. Our theme will be Awareness, Education, and Advocacy! Please take a moment to read the one-page December CCPS Budget Update (PDF). Learn about the Governor’s proposed budget initiatives, CCPS budget committee work, and very important budget dates to add to your calendar!
Together we can and will empower the next generation of learners, thinkers, and leaders! Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!
