New school years have a distinct rhythm. Bells mark the beginning and end of days and periods. Bus drivers pick up students both eager and reluctant. And, at Clopton, this school year has brought some significant changes.
The administrative team at Pike County R-III sat down for a conversation with the Louisiana Press Journal.
“Clopton is unique,” Mr. Harvey said. “We have multiple communities in our district. So, in some ways, we are the common point of contact for those communities.”
Clopton schools are in the first year of a restructuring of the school week, changing to a four-day week, with Mondays off. Mr. Mark Harvey, superintendent of schools, said that having that day off will save largely on transportation and food costs.
