Maryland Municipal League to award five scholarships

The Carroll County chapter of the Maryland Municipal League will award a $500 scholarship to one student from each of the county's five high schools who is planning to pursue studies in government and public service.

This year's scholarship has been doubled from the previous $250 that the county's eight towns have sponsored since 1991.

Closing date for scholarship applications is April 30. Students should contact their guidance office for applications and information.

The Maryland Municipal League is a nonprofit, nonpartisan association representing 150 city and town governments and three special taxing districts in Maryland.

Board makes up lost time by extending school day

To make up for lost snow days, the Carroll County Board of Education voted last month to extend the school day for two weeks.

From tomorrow to April 26, students will go to school 20 minutes earlier in the morning and stay 30 minutes later in the afternoon.

Morning kindergarten will be extended by the full 50 minutes. Afternoon kindergarten will not be extended.

Schedules for Career and Technology Center programs and other special programs, such as early intervention kindergarten, PREP, Extended Elementary Education Program and Head Start, will be adjusted.
