Clarke Central redesignated a Breakthrough School

Clarke Central High School has been redesignated a Breakthrough School by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP). The school is one of only 26 in the nation chosen for this national honor.

 

“I am thrilled our Clarke Central community is being honored with this prestigious national recognition,” said Principal Marie Yuran. “We continue to show our community that barriers can be overcome and that a high level of achievement is possible. None of these achievements would be possible without the hard work and dedication of our outstanding faculty, staff, students, parental partnerships, and the continued support of our school district leaders and community.”

Established in 2007, NASSP’s Breakthrough Schools program recognizes middle and high schools that serve large numbers of economically disadvantaged students. Schools are selected based on success in implementing strategies aligned with the three core areas of Breaking Ranks II: collaborative leadership, personalization and curriculum, instruction and assessment.

Clarke Central’s graduation rate increased from 71.3 percent in 2014 to 84.4 percent in 2016. The school’s College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) score also rose from 62.5 in 2014 to 79.1 in 2016, which is above the state average.

“I wish to extend my sincere congratulations and appreciation to the entire Clarke Central High School community on the redesignation as a Breakthrough School,” said Superintendent Jack Parish. “Being redesignated as a Breakthrough School demonstrates a commitment to continuous improvement. The award also demonstrates the outstanding work of our students as well as that of school leaders, faculty and staff who arrive at school each day committed to making a difference in the lives of students.”
