Purpose Statement

"The C&I Team will collaborate to shape district initiatives that support growth and learning by challenging Clinton City Schools students and staff to reach their full potential."


Elementary (K-5)- A Global Schools Initiative is underway to be implemented in the 2017-18 school year.  We have partnered with Participate Learning to provide a common framework at all 3 elementary sites.  Our organizational framework for literacy instruction is Daily 5/Cafe'.  As a result, students experience small group guided lessons with their teacher as well as opportunities to study vocabulary, read to themselves, read with a partner, and write in response to reading.  

Middle School (6-8)-


High School (9-12)-


Beginning Teacher Support-Beginning Teachers (BT) are teachers in their first 3 years of teaching.  In CCS each BT is assigned a school-based "Buddy" and a school Lead Mentor.  Additionally, there is an instructional coach assigned at K-5th and 6th-12th grades. BTs are also given summer orientation before their first year of teaching and then opportunities for monthly support meetings throughout their first three years.
