Welcome to Independence Elementary School!
Welcome to Independence Elementary School! There's something special about IE ... it's our people! You make our community what it is. We love that you are a part of our culture, our story, and our future.
The strong partnership we have with our families and staff is the glue that holds this district together, and your trust is something I don’t take for granted. Direct, transparent, and frequent communication has always been our priority and I will continue to keep you informed as we make every effort to keep our schools safe.
As we navigate through this year, we will continue to support our students academically while also focusing on their social-emotional well-being. We believe that students are more likely to succeed when they feel safe, accepted, and included.
Every decision we make in Clarkston Community Schools is designed to support student achievement. I am happy to report that we are already seeing progress in closing the achievement gaps and tackling the learning loss due to COVID.
When we talk about equity and inclusion in Clarkston, we mean two things: eliminating barriers to student achievement and supporting a culture of respect for all students and staff.
