Clinton Schools Superintendent Curt Nettles presented the Clinton Board of Education with a brief overview of the school report card Tuesday night at the regular Board of Education meeting and his message was do not judge a district solely on the annual information.
 
He says whether the data is excellent or leaves a lot to be desired, the information does not give a full presentation of every district in Illinois.
 
 
A positive portion of the report card was the fact Clinton school teachers were present 99-percent of the time. He notes however, there are major flaws in that figure.
 
 
Nettles also notes test scores are not going to be glamorous as the PARCC tests were just rolled out a few school years ago, and says it will take students a few rounds of testing to get up to the new standards set.
