The Latest Released Health & Safety Alert- Seizures and Unscheduled Hospitalizations

Superintendent, Matt Campbell Remarks...

The Board is very busy this time of year. We are working on our three year strategic plan that will begin January 1, 2019. The public hearing will be held on October 2, 2018 at 6:00 PM at the Board Offices. We are excited about implementing the new plan since we listened to you and crafted the plan based around sixty two completed surveys. Our new vision is an integrated community. The Board will utilize all its resources to give people with disabilities opportunities to work, live, socialize, play and truly be part of the Carroll County community.

We are also diligently preparing for the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities accreditation review which will be in January of 2019. The Board has to follow rule requirements of increase self-advocacy, increase integration, increase community employment, increase providers, decrease waiting list, and review all new independent providers within sixty days. The community employment program continues to grow and have success with twenty five job placements. The Board contracted with Mid-East Ohio Regional Council for a staff to support, recruit, train and educate local providers. We are looking at ways to improve self-advocacy, community integration and provider support which may include hiring new staff or redeploying current staff.

The Board will have a 3.6 mill ten year operational renewal levy on the ballot November 6, 2018. This means your taxes will not increase. The Board intends to operate at the current tax level for the next ten years. The ballot language is as follows: A renewal of a tax for the benefit of CARROLL COUNTY for the purpose of THE OPERATION OF COMMUNITY PROGRAMS AND SERVICES AUTHORIZED BY COUNTY BOARDS OF DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES (CARROLL HILLS PROGRAM), FOR THE ACQUISITION, CONSTRUCTION, RENOVATION, FINANCING, MAINTENANCE, AND OPERATION OF DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES FACILITIES OR FOR BOTH OF SUCH PURPOSES, at a rate not exceeding 3.6 mills for each one dollar of valuation, which amounts to thirty-six cents ($0.36) for each one hundred dollars of valuation, for ten (10) years, commencing in 2019, first due in calendar year 2020.

We've recently mailed a Carroll County Board of DD Community Report Card to Carroll County residents. In 2008, we served 255 individuals with disabilities. In 2017, we served 306 individual with disabilities. In 2018, the number increased again, we are currently serving 314 individuals with disabilities. The need for Board services continues to grow as evident by the numbers we are serving. We thank you for your continued support because your tax dollars and all the wonderful support received from local businesses and community members really does make a difference in the life of a person with disabilities!
