Clarksville Community School Corporation was one of three public Indiana school corporations invited to participate in “Innovation and Public School Choice” a conference hosted by the Institute for Quality Education on Jan. 25 at the Statehouse in Indianapolis.
Key community leaders and stakeholders in Clarksville who have supported the innovation efforts to bring Renaissance Academy, southern Indiana’s first New Tech Network School, to Clark County were invited to participate in a conference celebrating school choice and efforts made.
Kim Knott, Superintendent of Clarksville Community Schools, served on a panel along with two other public school leaders from Indianapolis Public Schools and Beech Grove discussing how their respective districts offer school choice and innovative public schools to their students and families.
Knott spoke to the great efforts made by Clarksville Community Schools to bring a unique, new educational model to southern Indiana and how Renaissance Academy is making a difference within Clarksville Community Schools and the southern Indiana area.
Renaissance Academy learners, families, community stakeholders and leaders participated in networking, informal conversation and spent time with State Representative Steve Stemler and Senator Ron Grooms by discussing the importance of school choice and innovative public school options and most importantly how Renaissance Academy has made a positive impact in their lives and the southern Indiana community.
