With latest evaluation Clinton leaves behind Top 20, named to Top 10
You get used to good news and high marks from the Clinton City School System.
Being ranked as one of the Top 20 school districts in the state annually will have that effect.
The last TNReady assessment, however, has changed that.
Clinton City Schools are no longer just a Top 20 system. They are now also a Top 10 system.
And last year was a year like no other. A global pandemic hit, educators were forced to think outside the box to find the best way to utilize and to accommodate virtual classes, and everything they knew about running a school system was placed in a box, shaken up, and dumped on the floor like puzzle pieces.
And in the midst of this there were concerns shouted from on high about “learning loss.”
The results from the TNReady assessment, however, show Clinton City School System flourished under the most-trying of circumstances.
