School Mission Statement
This mission statement is included in the Clay County Handbook and is reflective of the county school systems mission.

The mission of the Clay County Schools is to provide an educational program that meets the needs of all students. This can be accomplished through the recognition of individual differences, socio-economic conditions, expectations of parents, and an understanding of the school system's financial ability.
