The Garrett County Board of Education voted on January 12, 2021, to accept the Superintendent’s recommendation to remain in the “red model” in which students are learning virtually. Students will begin transitioning back to in-person learning when the Garrett County metrics are at 5% or less positivity rate and 15 or less per 100,000 for 14 consecutive days.

Anyone with a question or concern may contact, and you will receive a response.

There have been 1,716 confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Garrett County. Current metrics from the Garrett County Health Department are: 7-Day Positivity Percentage: 15.0%; 7-Day Case Rate Per 100,000: 50.7.

Donate to GaCo

FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Team 1629, the Garrett Coalition (GaCo) is supported by its gracious partners and team fundraising efforts.  In order to continue expanding the difference our team is making in regard to our vision of "STEM Ready" kids, we are relying on not only the generous support of our partners but donations from individuals who would like to help us towrds our vision.
Specificately, the donations we except through this campaign go directly to support initiatives targeting elementary and middle school students (not members of our high school team) in and about Garrett County. This includes the giving away of our LEGO Top Spinners, Binary Number Guessing Cards and LEGO Golden Ratio Calipers through STEM lesson GaCo students teach to every third, fourth and fifth grade student in Garrett County as well as supporting Garrett County FIRST LEGO League (FLL) and FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Teams. To learn more about our LEGO Top Spinner Initiative, click here. We can do more, but we need your help!
To make supporting our efforts easier, our team has setup an EdCo site to accept donations by credit card. If you wish to help us towards are vision of "STEM Ready" kids, please click here - thanks!
