Small Class Size
Clarkston students and teachers alike will enjoy some of the smallest class sizes in Oakland County this year ... our average classroom size across the district is 22 students!
We have also created new positions in the areas of instructional technology and literacy. Seven of our veteran teachers will now serve as instructional technologists, bringing innovative new technology tools and hands-on applications to the daily classroom instruction for all students, k-12. Our instructional technologists will work with teachers to seamlessly weave engaging technology tools into the curriculum to deepen the learning experience. Our teachers will benefit from the insight of seven new literacy coaches who will support literacy instruction within the elementary classroom setting. They will be collaborating with grade-level teams, special education and support staff to strengthen students' understanding of reading, writing, and word study.
We're also enhancing our program offerings to include an expanded CTE program for Clarkston Junior High School students, and we are continuing our partnership with Stars & Stripes Gymnastics to offer on-site schooling (with an open enrollment option for students who live outside of Clarkston, and wish to learn and train at Stars & Stripes). We have enhanced learning opportunities with full implementation of elementary world language, coding at our middle school, expanded internships for high school students, enhanced mathematics instruction, and partnership with our community to foster the well-being of our students and staff.
