CLOUGH PIKE ELEMENTARY: 
Serves children from Preschool through Fifth grade. There are twenty-one classrooms, including four Preschool sections and four Kindergarten. Learning outcomes for students are aligned with Ohio’s New Learning Standards. Created by teachers, parents, education experts and others from across the country, these learning standards provide clear, consistent expectations for what students should be learning at each grade in order to be prepared for college and career. To see specific learning outcomes in reading and mathematics by grade level, please see the Ohio PTA Parent Guides.

Provides special education support for qualifying students in an inclusive environment.  Teams of special education teachers and regular education teachers collaborate and serve students with identified special needs.  We offer programs for students who are learning disabled, developmentally handicapped, orthopedically handicapped, and those with social communication needs.   Additionally, Speech and Language therapy, Occupational therapy, and Physical therapy are offered to those students who qualify.

The Response to Intervention process is followed when students are struggling at school.  The goal of the Response to Intervention is to identify an action plan that will improve the student’s academic, behavioral, or social skills.  Based on data collected in the classroom, teachers may provide automatic interventions and document these on a Tier 2 intervention form.  If a more intensive, individualized plan is needed, the teacher will schedule a Tier 3 meeting with parents and other support personnel, as needed.  A collaborative plan will be developed at the meeting with parent input.  Parental involvement is a very important part of this process.

PTO is very active, hosting skating parties, fundraisers such as our Walk-A-Thon, financial support for field trips, art & music programs, bringing technology in our classrooms, as well as a host of other support during the year.

Works with different organizations in the community which include:  Recycling for a Cause Pull Tab collection for the Ronald McDonald House, Jump Rope for Heart to support the American Heart Association, Save Lives Be An Organ Donor Program, Penny Wars to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes.
