“CCS has provided my 3 kids with the tools they need to learn, the resources they need to be productive, well rounded adults, the skills they need to be effective leaders and members of the community, and the enablers to help them be successful as they transition to adulthood. There is a reason Carmel consistently ranks as a top tier community across all of the United States..."
"My sons’ school is one of 11 elementary schools in our district, and each one is filled with amazing teachers. Teachers who, while shepherding their own families through the “COVID years,” gamely and professionally continue to teach and love our children. They’ve done it over Zoom, they’ve done it masked, and they’ve done it beautifully. They teach on, and they have my utmost respect."
“I have had two children in the CCS school system for eight years now, and I am so impressed by the staff, curriculum and the teacher’s dedication to their students and excellence. What they have done, especially through a pandemic, is nothing short of remarkable, especially with the limited resources they have to work with.”
"I believe our school district is doing a great job of preparing our students for success in all aspects of life."

“We have been blessed to know Jake Nichols for the past 9 years. During that time, we have witnessed him supporting his children, their classmates, teachers, and staff at FDE, Clay and CHS. He makes his children's education and overall school life a priority, volunteering for trips, cheering at sporting events and musical performances, and knowing and appreciating the teachers and staff who make all of these things happen. Jake understands what it takes to support CCS for the benefit of the entire CCS Family. I trust him to give his all for my own kids and their classmates to have the best possible experience at CCS."
“I just came here to post about this. Kristin Kouka is a Gem. She has 3 kids and is a speech therapist that is intimately involved with kids mental health and she has a huge heart. She is level headed, a good communicator, reliable, inclusive, kind, and honest. I am super duper thrilled she is running. This is what our school needs IMO. She will do what is best for ALL kids. She is not afraid to take a stand and has always been on to speak up for what is right, but in a a respectable way. She also will be an extra special voice for neurodiverse students."
“...all I know is I adore Jenny and she is one of the most Genuine and caring people I've met! She is inclusive and makes everyone feel they matter when she speaks to you. Not to mention she is incredibly bright and intelligent!"
Support CCS is a non-partisan political action committee working to support Carmel Clay Schools. We believe that public education is the foundation of a healthy democracy: accessible to all, it brings communities together across differences while respecting the individuality of its citizens. We therefore seek to support the election of school board candidates who will fulfill the mission and guiding principles of Carmel Clay Schools.
