Clay Community School Corporation

2020 School Corporation Annual Performance Report (APR)
General Explanations
The APR is a report on the performance of schools and school corporations (districts) in your area. The goal is to provide information regarding the progress schools are making to help students become college-and–career ready. Where possible, this report contains three years of data to show trends – not just this year’s results. In addition, the State Average is also shown for comparison purposes. There are additional indicators that are available on the Indiana Department of Education’s Web site (, including data broken out by different student subgroups, such as race, gender, income level and special education.
Indiana educators and citizens have developed higher academic standards for all students. These standards are necessary to prepare Indiana students to be successful in life, whether they go directly to higher education or to the workplace. For high schools, you will see graduation rates and the percentage of graduates who plan to go on to college.
Other important data are provided, such as average attendance rates and indicators of school safety, including expulsions and suspensions. Also included is information about your school corporation, such as how much is spent, on average, for each student; how much teachers are paid; and the percentage of corporation students who are in special education classes or gifted and talented classes.
COVID-19 NOTE: Due to COVID-19, ILEARN/ISTEP assessments were not administered during the 2019-2020 school year.
