Jim Peck named CJHS principal

Board members socially distance while others attend via Zoom


CLINTON — In an unusual school board meeting Tuesday night, Clinton Junior High School assistant principal Jim Peck was promoted to principal for the upcoming school year.

Clinton school board members met at the CJHS library Tuesday night but stayed properly distanced to abide by the state’s order for social distancing. Guests were able to attend the meeting online via Zoom.
In addition to Peck’s promotion, Clinton school district business manager Drew Goebel was named assistant superintendent. Goebel, along with other support staff and district administration, were awarded a 3 percent pay increase.
The board also awarded Superintendent Curt Nettles with a new contract that will keep him at the helm of the district through 2024. Nettles said he plans to retire at the end of that school year.
In other action, the board approved the employment of Alissa Gruenewalk, PreK at Douglas; Heather Jones, CJHS cheer coach; and Treva Howard, CJHS kitchen staff. Karol Wilson will transfer from CJHS teacher’s aide to CJHS lead secretary.
