The Carroll County School District is located in a rural community that primarily relies on government assistance to individuals, farming, logging,forestry, etc.  Only one industrial plant is located in the county and as a result there are very limited resources.  The county is one of the largest in the state; therefore, busing of students is extensive and expensive for the school district.  

An active private school in Carrollton results in a low number of students attending the public schools.
