Welcome to Clinton County School District! On behalf of the district’s school board, I ask you to join me in welcoming the 2016 – 2017 school year with a fresh perspective on educational growth and opportunity for our district’s children. Through the devoted attention of Clinton County Schools’ teachers, staff, and families, our students will reach their academic potential and blossom into the individuals they are meant to be.
Our vision statement (Expecting Excellence Every Day) is much more than a catch phrase. While each week of the school year marks a milestone filled with critical learning for every child, it is actually so much more. I am always inspired and fueled by the importance of achieving educational proficiency for all children in Clinton County Schools.
As we lead our students on their educational journey, our sole focus is preparing them to be college and career ready upon graduation from the Clinton County School District. Among the multitude of roles families and educators must fulfill for our children, a most critical one is preparing our students to compete in a 21st century job market.
We must recognize each student’s uniqueness and individuality and really LOOK at each child to see how they are progressing emotionally, socially, and academically on a daily basis. This is a challenge we can all accept on our students’ behalf.
Beyond all else, we cannot underestimate the power of engaged parents and guardians in preparing our children for educational success. It is their role as children’s first and most important teacher that establishes a solid foundation for educational achievement.
As we embark upon the 2016-2017 school year, I join Clinton County Schools’ board, teachers, and staff in wishing each student a wonderful school year.
We ARE Bulldogs!
