“We were recently rated the No. 1 school district in the Jackson metro area, as well as the safest district and best place to teach,” said Dr. Tim Martin, superintendent of schools. “We are a great option for families who are serious about their children’s education, and we’re glad to see our enrollment at this level.”
Beginning with the 2018-19 freshman class, students will be able to customize their high school experience by choosing from four different degree options. Available diploma tracks include Traditional Diploma, Career and Technical Education Endorsement, Academic Endorsement, or Distinguished Academic Diploma. Each option sets up the students for success after graduation whether they go on to college, the work force, a career and technical program or the military.
Creel is the recipient of the Clinton Public School District’s Dedication of Our Valued Employees, or DOVE, customer service award for the month of September. He will be recognized at the school board meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 9 at Central Office. “He looks out for all the children and always is in a good mood and has a smile and tells the kids to have a good day,” said parent Paula Arrington, in nominating Creel for the award. “He goes out of his way to be polite to parents and children.”
He scored perfect on the ACT, twice. Now, Clinton High School senior Clark Hensley has been named a National Merit Semifinalist. This designation comes from high scores on the PSAT as a junior, and Clark is now eligible to become a National Merit Finalist in the spring.
At its September meeting, the Clinton School Board honored students who have achieved proficiency in the English language.
