To keep pay for employees in line with the minimum wage increase, the Clinton Board of Education approved an increase in pay for district support staff.
Superintendent Curt Nettles at the rescheduled Monday meeting indicated to the Board of Education this was worked on by Assistant Superintendent Drew Goebel.
Additionally, the Board of Education amended the budget. Nettles called this a formality - as this is something that is done every year. He points out, this year's budget may see more changes thanks to an infusion of federal funding for COVID.
Finally, the Board Monday night approved math intervention positions at Clinton Elementary School. Nettles hopes this will attract some very strong professionals thanks to an infusion of federal funds. He points out, he would like to see the district plan to continue these positions once federal funding has stopped.
Principals of the various school buildings Monday updated the Board on the progress of summer school indicating invitations have started to go out to in-person learners through the student materials that are sent home and then mailed to remote learners.
Nettles will join the WHOW Morning Show Wednesday morning at 8:30 am.
