You must apply for your child to be considered for early placement in kindergarten, before June 1, 2017. The application can be obtained at the Board of Education office.

Welcome to the Clay County Public Schools homepage. We take seriously the responsibility that we have to educate the children of this community. At the core of who we are as a district is a commitment to continuously improve. To do that, we need to know how we are doing. To gather this information, we have created a survey for families, students, and community members to complete. It should take no more than 5-10 minutes to complete, and we pledge to take this information and use it to find creative ways to make our district stronger in order to better meet the needs of our students.
