The Clarenceville School District has a history of commitment to excellence in education. The board of education and district citizens have endorsed this commitment by supporting the development, implementation and evaluation of the curriculum and the instructional program. Administrators and staff members have worked together to design and implement instructional programs which will meet the many and diverse needs of students from pre-kindergarten through grade twelve. While there are many reasons to be proud of the district’s instructional program, excellence demands a dedication to continuing evaluation and improvement. The following curriculum links provide an overview of our current K-12 instructional program.
The Clarenceville School District is excited to announce the launch of the Atlas Rubicon K-12 district curriculum mapping system. This system allows students, parents and educators to easily view the curriculum expectations of each grade level and subject in the core content areas. We believe that this valuable tool will provide a consistent, clear understanding for all stakeholders of the teaching and learning that takes place in our classrooms.
The maps in the Atlas system are the result of the collaborative effort of Clarenceville's K-12 teaching staff, administrators and Oakland Schools, who spent many hours reaching a consensus on the curriculum and creating this two-dimensional graph of instructional planning. The curriculum in Atlas not only meets but often exceeds the state standards. Educators worked together in various groupings, beyond the scope of grade level and subject area, to make certain the content provides the foundation for ensuring that each student will make no less than one year's growth in one year's time and that all students will achieve at a high level.
Clarenceville's Atlas curriculum maps provide a vital communication link between school and home to provide parents an overview of what is being taught in the classroom. You will be able to view a list of main topics, essential questions, content, and skills for each core subject at each grade level. Utilizing Atlas Rubicon, parents and guardians will have an opportunity to reinforce at home the focus of learning that takes place at school.
While it is difficult for a two-dimensional map or graph to capture the multi-dimensional teaching and learning that takes place each and every day, Atlas Rubicon will be continuously reviewed and adjusted to meet the needs of our learners.
We hope that you will utilize Atlas and provide us with feedback as we strive together to fulfill Clarenceville's mission of providing individuals a variety of educational opportunities that enable them to become lifelong learners and productive members of a changing world.

Students enrolled in the Clarenceville School District in grades 5-12 are eligible to enroll in an approved online course. An online course is a “…course of study that is capable of generating a credit or a grade, that is provided in an interactive internet-connected learning environment, in which pupils are separated from their teachers by time or location or both, and in which a teacher who holds a valid Michigan teaching certificate is responsible for determining appropriate instructional methods for each pupil, diagnosing learning needs, assessing pupil learning, prescribing intervention strategies, reporting outcomes, and evaluating the effects of instruction and support strategies.”
With the consent of the student’s parent or legal guardian and school counselor (grades 9-12) or school principal (grades 5-8), a student may enroll in up to two online courses as requested by the pupil during an academic semester/trimester. Clarenceville School District supports online learning, and as a district, we pride ourselves on providing a large variety of educational opportunities for our students. However, we encourage parents to consider carefully if a 100% online course is ideal for their child given the fact that they will be forfeiting face-to-face teacher classroom instruction and support. Parents should carefully consider the unique qualities of their child and home-life when investigating if an online class is right for them. These factors include:
Are daily transportation options consistently available to support your child’s unique schedule?
Can your student create and maintain a study schedule without face-to-face interaction with a teacher?
Can your student self-advocate to seek help within a virtual setting?
Does your student possess the independent study habits needed to complete an entire course online without direct supervision?
Does your student have the reading, writing, math, and computer literacy skills to succeed in a class that is completely online?
Should you request that your child participate in an online class experience, please note the following:
The highly qualified teacher providing content for the course will only be available remotely via email or possibly phone, and will not be a Clarenceville School District employee.
Students will work independently outside of the traditional classroom setting and will not be present with their current teacher or classmates during that subject. Therefore transportation must be provided by the parent to support your student’s unique school day schedule.
Students will be monitored by a Clarenceville para-professional or support staff member.
Changes to the existing student’s schedule will be made.
If approved, both parent and student must have read and agreed to the 21f Online Learning Course Contract and District Policy.
Should you have any additional questions about online learning opportunities or would like to further discuss the online option, please contact your child’s counselor or principal.
