Improving student achievement through continuous school improvement is the key component of Carroll Community School District's Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP).

Professional development is the key to continuous school improvement. Carroll Community School District serves approximately 1700 students in grades K – 12. CCSD has two elementary buildings, one middle school, one high school, and one alternative high school building. In addition, the district operates a 4-year old preschool for about 175 youngsters in two different sites throughout the community.

  1. Children should be encouraged to become lifelong learners and problem solvers.

  2. Parents and community are the most important influence on a child's development, behavior, and attitude toward learning.

  3. A quality school understands the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical needs of its students and makes decisions based on those characteristics.

  4. A successful student is able to think and reason for himself/herself, yet not be afraid to ask for advice or help when needed.  He/She is willing and able to use all the different resources available in order to achieve success.

  5. An effective staff member is one who cares for the students, has a sense of pride, and works for the good of the organization.

  6. An effective classroom is one where the teacher and student work together in a respectful manner toward a common goal.

  7. A quality instructional program includes opportunities, variety, and challenges, which create an environment for all students to be successful.

  8. Schools should teach fundamentals, responsibility, respect, and skills for use throughout life.
