Carroll County (Md.) district nears goal of eliminating open-space classrooms

June 12, 2013
District says hopes to have all classrooms enclosed by the end of 2014

By the end of 2014, it is believed that Carroll County school district aims to be the first school district in Maryland to eliminate all of its open-space classrooms. The Baltimore Sun says the school system is nearing the end of a seven-year process to eliminate all open-space classrooms. For years, teachers have used bookshelves and rolling carts to provide partitions to their classroom areas. But the sound of one class engaged in an activity could still be heard about 15 feet away by another class, making it difficult for students to concentrate.
