An always positive individual, Clinton Schools Superintendent Curt Nettles says not everything is negative surrounding a now three-and-a-half-week long closure of schools in Illinois to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Clinton schools did not have an e-learning policy in place before the abrupt canceling of school by Governor JB Pritzker on March 13 but Nettles believes there is a silver lining of schools stretching their capabilities of how their students learn.
While there will perhaps be room for expanding learning opportunities to an online or technology-based style, Nettles continues to push the importance of students to be in classrooms with an instructor leading them.
Governor Pritzker last week extended school cancellations to April 8, a week from next Wednesday. Clinton students are on spring break this week.
