CARROLLTON – Groundbreaking is this Thursday for a new Carrollton schools complex – to be paid for with no local tax dollars.

The 6 p.m. public groundbreaking will be held on the north yard and front porch of the Carrollton Exempted Village School District administration office on SR 332, just south of Carrollton.

The program will include a welcome by Ed Robinson, director of Special Programs; the singing of the National Anthem and Carrollton High School Alma Mater led by the CHS Marching band.

Remarks will be given by Carrollton Schools Supt. Dr. David Quattrochi, Carroll County Commissioner Jeff Ohler and a representative from Carroll County Energy.

Proclamations will be read and presented prior to the 6:25 p.m. scheduled ceremonial groundbreaking with participation by both students and adults. The program will be closed by a CHS band performance.

“Science under the Stars” will be featured from 6:45 to 8 p.m. at the Power Training Center located on the school complex near Community Field.

Sixty-one percent of the $38 million project is being provided by Carroll County Energy in the form of a $1.3 million payment for 30 years – an agreement negotiated by Supt. Quattrochi.

Commenting on the event, Supt. Quattrochi said: “There are so many people that made this historical groundbreaking event possible. First, this is made possible because of Carroll County Energy, Carroll County commissioners, Board of Education, Township trustees and the village representatives.

”Secondly, there are other individuals in the community that helped this dream become a reality. I’m grateful to serve this great school district.”

“I’m especially excited for the students that will have an opportunity to learn in a 21st-century facility. We have great teachers, staff members and parents that will greatly benefit from this initiative,” he added.

Quattrochi noted the entire community is invited to the groundbreaking.
