Preparing All Students for Success

Clay County Public Schools

Parents/Students/Members of the Community:

As you may know, in-person instruction will begin for Clay Co. Public Schools on Tuesday, September 29th.   For students who have chosen to come back to school, you will be working from home, on Mondays, and will be attending classes in-person Tuesday through Friday of each week.  We would like to take this opportunity to remind parents that their child’s safety is of utmost importance.  In accordance with state guidelines, masks will be required for all students, K – 12.  These must be worn during the school day and while students are riding a school bus.  All students who are returning to school need to bring their Chromebook with them Tuesday September 29th.  Students and parents should be receiving a call from their respective schools with further instructions before next week.

Thank you,

William Sexton

Community Resources

The community is an integral part of the education of a child.  We ascribe to the philosophy that it truly "takes a village to raise a child".  Having strong community partnerships is essential to our school district's success, and we too want to be a good partner with our local partners in order to move our entire county forward.

Within our local school district, we have been given the opportunity to work with Berea College on a grant program.  The grant program is called “Gear Up Opportunity”.  Currently, the staff members that work within this grant serve the 8th grade student body at Clay County Middle School and the 9th grade student body at Clay County High School.  We have two College and Career Navigators, Amy Sims at CCHS and Leslie Davis at CCMS.  Also, there are two Academic Interventionist, Natosha Hacker at CCHS and Madison Reed at CCMS.  The goal of the grant program is to increase the number of students who are prepared for success in education after high school.  In order to meet that goal, staff members are working with students on their academic performances, increasing the high school graduation rate, increasing access that students have to STEM coursework, and to foster the knowledge and skill development that prepares students to be informed, thoughtful, and productive individuals and citizens. The Gear Up team works closely with classroom teachers and school administration.  The Gear Up program is set to follow the current 8th and 9th grade student body until they graduate from high school.  Have a student currently in 8th or 9th grade? Take time to get to know your Gear Up staff.  They are eager to serve your student!
