Congresswoman Hartzler was recently in Clinton touring the Clinton Technical School. She is pictured above with Dan Wallace, Assistant Superintendent and Director of the Clinton Technical School.
The Clinton Technical School serves high school students from Appleton City, Ballard, Calhoun, Clinton, Lakeland, Montrose, Osceola, Sherwood, and Windsor and the school’s mission is: “To Prepare All Students for Productive Living.”
There are 11 different secondary and post-secondary technical programs located between Clinton Technical School and Clinton High School. They include Agriculture, Automotive, Building Trades, Business, Computer Repair & Networking, Family Consumer Sciences, Health Occupations, Machine Tool Technology, Marketing & Cooperative Education, Practical Nursing, and Welding.
As a community Clinton is fortunate to have a progressive school system with up to date facilities. I had the pleasure of meeting with several Clinton School District Administrators last week and I was impressed with the level of commitment and professionalism displayed by the group.
The school district’s mission is “To Become a World Class School District” so I asked one of the administrators what that meant. His response impressed me and I thought it was worth sharing. He said “World Class means providing kids in Clinton the tools and knowledge to compete on a global stage”.
Our schools are one of our greatest assets as a community and the success of our community is tied hand in hand with the success of our schools. There will be an issue on the April 2, 2013 ballot to improve facilities and I’ll provide information in future blog posts to help you make an informed decision when you cast your vote.
