Finance & Budget


The CCPS Finance Office is focused on supporting public education in Caroline County through sound fiscal management. We oversee the school system's budget, accounting, grants, internal auditing and financial reporting.

Operating Budget

CCPS develops its annual operating budget through a series of internal and public meetings. The first public meeting regarding the development of the next fiscal year’s budget usually takes place in December. Several additional public meetings take place in January, and the final budget is presented to the Caroline County Commissioners in early February. The budget meeting schedule for the next fiscal year will be posted as soon as it becomes available

Financial Statements

Audited financial statements are due to MSDE by September 30th each year. CCPS’s financial statements are prepared by TGM Group LLC of Salisbury, MD.
