Matt Campbell, Superintendent
Talks About DD Month and Our Recent Accredation
Wow! It is hard to believe it is March and DD awareness month once again. This year's theme is "What is your story?" The Developmental Disabilities world is in the midst of drastic change. Our focus on person centered thinking has brought about many wonderful changes in services.
I am proud of the services Carroll County Board of Developmental Disabilities provides to Carroll County. I believe the reason why we are so successful is the number one resource we have is our staff. I know the main reason we received the maximum Accreditation of 3 years this year is due to staff effort.
