Dear Students, Parents, and Staff,
My Panther Pride finds me high on a mountain as I sing the praises of our fine county! What a wonderful time to witness the countless illustrations of collaboration, “Clinch County Style.”
A renewed focus on economic development and literacy across all of our community stakeholders serves as the impetus for our revised strategic plan. Recent accolades include our recognition as a Certified Literate Community Program (CLCP), a finalist as a Georgia Family-Friendly Partnership School, a Title I High-Progress School for a second year in a row, and a graduation rate of 87.2% (almost 15% higher than the state rate of 72.5%).
I close this year’s Chalk Talk with a quote from Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education (September, 2013) as he addressed the National Press Club on the state of education in America.
“I am optimistic, above all, because of the millions of students who come to school every day. Many face extraordinary barriers and hardships, but they come because they feel safe, they feel engaged, and they feel loved and valued and inspired by their teachers. Our students hunger for the emotional, social, and mental nourishment that comes from a great school.”
Secretary Duncan referenced a “great school” and I am confident you will agree that we have three great schools. Every opportunity you get, thank those who choose to play a role. It takes every parent, leader, teacher, support staff, lunchroom server, bus driver, and community member to raise a child. It takes all of us working together to grow a community. Thank you for your support.
To read Superintendent Ryan's message in full, we invite you to view this letter.
