The Carmel Education Foundation is proud to endorse the upcoming Carmel Clay Schools operating referendum. The referendum represents a crucial investment in the future of our community, ensuring that our children continue to have access to high-quality education, innovative resources and dedicated educators who will empower them to succeed. 

At the foundation, we believe in the power of public education.We recognize and celebrate the great strides of our students, teachers, and administrators. The operating referendum will provide the funds necessary to enable competitive compensation for teachers and staff, as well as educational programming that supports our students.

“We are proud of our partnership with the Carmel Clay School district. We believe the work that we do has ripple effects that extend beyond our schools, enriching our entire community. Approving the upcoming referendum will ensure our students continue to receive the highest quality educational opportunities,” stated Dallas Shelby, Carmel Education Foundation board president.

We encourage everyone to show up on or before November 7 to support our students, educators and the community. Vote yes for the CCS operating referendum. Together we can safeguard the future of our students and our community.
