While keeping our communities safe through social distancing continues to be a top priority at this time, that hasn't left the leader of Clinton Schools without feeling disappointment for the way the year must finish.
Last Friday, Illinois Governor JB Pritzker announced the 2019-2020 school year would conclude through remote learning, and students would not be returning to classes. Superintendent of Clinton Schools, Curt Nettles says while the decision wasn't surprising, it doesn't take away the fact there are going to be moments missed by students.
For teachers, the abrupt finish to the school year will be difficult for them and Nettles says it should be as they focus on developing strong relationships with their students.
Remote learning will be implemented to finish out the year and school districts will begin adjusting heading in the new school year next year.
