Committees

 Active involvement of parents is at the heart of the Carroll Creek Montessori Public Charter School (CCMPCS) program. These committees are one of the many ways that parents may take part in helping CCMPCS.

Building and Maintenance Committee (IT Subcommittee)
This committee ensures that the interior and the grounds of the school are well maintained, meet the needs of students and teachers, are in compliance with our lease agreement, and are operating within budgetary guidelines. The chair of this committee communicates any building maintenance issues with the property manager and mobilizes the committee to respond to repair items that our lease agreement requires us to address. This committee is also proactive in identifying areas for future facility improvement. For further information, please contact building@carrollcreekmontessori.org.

Involvement and Communications Committee (Website Team Subcommittee)
(formerly Community Outreach & Programs Committee)
This committee works to equip adults in CCMPCS families to support the school, staff, classrooms, students, and community through their volunteer efforts. The committee also organizes and facilitates promotional and community building events, both at the school and throughout Frederick County, for CCMPCS, Frederick County, and Spanish-speaking populations. In the communications role, the committee is responsible for establishing and maintaining the official communication channels and social media of CCMPCS.
