- Clay County’s Employees of the Year Named - In the past, the District of Clay County honored sixth grade teacher Jennifer Moore and elementary school nurse Linda Turner as the School-Related Employees of the Year. Ms. Moore believes it is critical to have high expectations for all students, including those who are labeled as low-achievers.

Chalk Talk: How Florida Schools Are Unique
School districts in Florida are structured differently than those in other states. Many of them are very large districts—some with 100 or more schools—that encompass entire counties. In other areas, it is more common to see a county contain dozens of school districts. In other areas, school districts often have only one high school, while most Florida districts are comprised of several high schools. Furthermore, it is popular to see learning “academies” in Florida schools. These academies help high school students take personal tracks in their courses and pursue special interests that may be future careers for them. Although schools in other states frequently offer technical schools and some specialized courses, these academies seem to provide more variety in the areas students can pursue and allow students to form relationships with people in the industry and potentially earn certifications. These programs truly prepare students for college and their careers.
