HAIRE: A look at alternative education


Greater Clark is proud that there has not been a student expelled from any school for more than three years. The district continues to provide safe learning environments where all students’ needs are met.

On a personal note, I could not help but notice the outpouring of concern and care from our parents in the wake of the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. I noticed parents putting their arms around their children at many of the school events I attended prior to winter break. 

Indeed, our children are of the utmost importance and now is the time, more than ever, that we put our arms around all of our students so that no student fails. The outstanding daily work by our faculty and staff does not go unnoticed. Together as a community, we must never give up on any child. It is with that philosophy that we continue to expand our initiatives to ensure every child in Greater Clark County Schools succeeds.
