Mission Statement

The mission of the Clinton Community School District is to educate all students to their highest level of achievement through an engaging curriculum in a caring community.

As The Clinton Board of Education We Believe

All children, when meaningfully engaged and motivated, are capable of learning. The resources of the school district should be used to provide all children with equal opportunities to achieve to their fullest potential.

The classroom teachers have the greatest potential to impact student learning when they have a deep understanding of their content, are provided a well-designed curriculum, utilize the most effective instructional strategies, and are supported through a high-quality program of ongoing professional training with collegial opportunities to reflect on their work.

All children should be provided a rigorous and engaging curriculum designed to develop their full potential as lifelong learners and prepare them to continue their education, pursue a vocation, and become contributing members of society.

Learning will be enhanced by adherence to an integrated curriculum that promotes continuity and cumulative acquisition of skills and knowledge from grade to grade and from school to school.

A broad-based co-curricular activities program that encourages students to explore their individual talents and abilities enhances a rigorous and engaging curriculum.

All students should be allowed to develop, learn, and grow in a safe and nurturing school environment.

The school facility is an integral part of the educational experience for all children. Schools that are well designed and properly maintained provide children with a safe, comfortable learning environment and have a positive impact on overall student achievement and behavior.
