AGENDA: Clinton Community School Board



The family is the primary influence in a child’s life. All children learn better when their parents or primary caregivers are involved in their children’s education.

Educating our youth is a responsibility of the entire community, carried out through a collaborative effort. The primary goal of public education is to prepare all children to become contributing members of an ever-changing multicultural and global society.

The Board of Education is the primary representative of the school district and acts as a bridge between the community and the district.
