School Governance

Governing Council

CCMPCS is run by a Governing Council (GC) consisting of parents, the Principal, staff representatives, and members of the Frederick community. The Governing Council serves as the policy making body for CCMPCS and also has a representative on the CCMPCS Continuous School Improvement (CSI) as required by the Frederick County Public School (FCPS) charter school policy.  The Governing Council has this role as a result of our school’s status as a charter school which allows us to develop policies necessary to realize the goals of our school’s charter and meet the needs of our families. This is a truly unique opportunity within the public school system.

Meetings

GC meetings are the second Monday of each month and are open to all parents and staff; minutes from monthly meetings are available here.

Committees

The parent representative positions on the GC are filled by parents of current CCMPCS students.  Each parent member of the GC is responsible for chairing one of the committees, which include Building & Maintenance, Involvement & Communications, Education & Curriculum, Finance, Fundraising & Grants, and Staffing & Admissions.  A parent member also serves as the chair of the GC. Elections for these positions are held every fall as current members’ two-year terms expire in rotation. All parents are eligible to run to become a member of the GC. The staff elects their own representatives. GC meetings are held monthly and dates are determined annually by the members of the GC.  GC meetings are open to all parents and staff. Meeting agendas and minutes are distributed to the school community and archived here as well as email, Facebook Community Page, and Parent Square.

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.

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.
