Unique Attendance Issues
- Since students attend the CCCTC programs, usually for 2 to 4 mods each day, the total time missed from a program is considerably more than the time missed in a regular, one mod class at the home high schools. PLEASE NOTE: Students who regularly miss more than 5 days per semester (or 6%) at their home high school may find it much harder to stay up with the work at the CCCTC because of this considerable difference.
- Students, who do not pass a class in their program, cannot return for future parts of the program.
- Part of a student's grade is based on work in the shops, real-life experience, and use of industrial equipment that CANNOT be duplicated at home.
- Professional standards and competencies are emphasized to prepare students for the world of work. Attendance is included in those standards.
- Many programs such as Cosmetology and Nursing require a certain amount of documented hours of experience to achieve industry certification through the Maryland State Board. These are Maryland State Standards that CCPS and CCCTC cannot alter.
- The "Award of Excellence" and "Certificate of Achievement" awarded at the end of each program are based on grades and attendance. Students are recognized for these accomplishments at the CCCTC certificate ceremonies at the end of each class.
Home Access Center
Parents and students are encouraged to stay informed about the student's current grades in a class. Instructors post grades regularly, so problems can be seen early on and resolved.

Some ways the community benefits the Tech Center
- Each program depends on community businesses to attend their mandatory advisory committee meetings. Many of the improvements over the years have come from recommendations from our local business partners.
- Internships would not be possible without businesses recognizing the quality of our students.
- Local businesses volunteer to help at our trade show in engineering, the CCCTC open house every fall, and our mock job interviews
- Local business often hire students from our programs and offer resources and time to assist our instructors.
Some ways the Tech Center benefits the County
- The CCCTC provides one of the largest career preparation facilities in Carroll County with close to 1000 students receiving career training each year.
- Graduates who attended the CCCTC are an important source for the Carroll County labor force, management team, and small business owners.
- The Tech Center routinely provides community service projects for the county, such as, repairing county vehicles, creation of the 911 memorial, building the construction shed, renovating a pole barn into a classroom, producing oyster reef balls, providing a quality low-cost, cosmetology salon and catering facility, and so much more!
- Over 10 of the current teachers at the Career and Tech Center were previous students.
Benefits TO and FROM The Community
- Local businesses benefit from the Carroll County Career and Technology Center by having a trained workforce. Many of the students who graduate from the CCCTC go on to work at local businesses, including the12 CCCTC instructors who came back to CCCTC to teach.
- Programs at CCCTC are required to meet with local businesses that form our Program Advisory Committees (PAC's). PAC's meet twice a year to discuss current trends and new technology. Many of the improvements seen in our programs can be traced back to the PAC's suggestions. PAC's are part of the requirements for State and Federal Funding.
- Local businesses allow students with skills and experience to intern. This is a valuable resource that is celebrated every year at the CCCTC partnership dinner.
