School board approves e-learning plan

CLINTON — The Clinton Board of Education unanimously approved an electronic learning (e-learning) plan for students at its Sept. 20 meeting.

In an Aug. 29, 2022 email to parents, Superintendent Curt Nettles said e-learning may be used “in the event of an emergency day, such as a snow day or other weather-related event.”

E-learning allows students to do schoolwork at home and the day would count as student attendance verses students having to make up days at the end of the school year.

Clinton schools have not used formal e-learning in the past, however Nettles asked the board to approve the plan “so that it is available to us if we decide it would be useful. It is still my position that it is better for students to be present with teachers to get the best educational opportunity available.”
