The Ohio Department of Education has recognized and awarded 134 schools throughout the state as Schools of Promise for 2008-2009. Clermont Northeastern Elementary School was selected based on its Ohio Achievement Test scores.
“More than 40 percent of our students are considered low income based on the school lunch program and more than 75 percent of those students passed the math and reading achievement tests,” said Glenda Greene, principal. “For the last four years our building has received an excellent rating from the state and we are very excited about getting this award.”
According to Val Davis, dean of students, the award is a result of the hard work and dedication of the staff.
