Advocacy Initiatives

As a public school district, Carmel Central School District is subject to laws and regulations from various state and federal agencies. The Board of Education strives to keep the community apprised of any laws or regulations that may impact your child, and advocates for our students as needed.

We always need the help of the Carmel community to unite in having our voices heard and we encourage all residents to contact our elected officials to advocate for our students.
