With the school year officially moving to remote learning for the duration fo the 2019-2020 school year, the Clinton Board of Education met remotely for Tuesday night and adjust a couple of positions for the upcoming school year.
School Superintendent Curt Nettles explains their technology position at the high school needs filled as technology continues to grow in its role in schools. He indicates the time has expired on an agreement with the school's former technology teacher as a part-time IT director.
According to Nettles, the position would fulfill several roles in the district. From troubleshooting technology to help teachers and students understand what they're using, he believes it would end up being a cost-saving for the district.
The district is considering easing a large burden on Karl Parrish, who serves as both a high and junior high school physical education teacher and a driver's ed instructor. Nettles says the demand for drivers education is so high, they are transitioning Parrish to a full-time driver's ed instructor and creating a junior high PE position.
Also during the Tuesday night Board of Education meeting, the Board approved the amended budget for the Fiscal Year '20 budget.
