The Clark County R-1 School District will try to make it easier for a few students to get a diploma.

The district’s $9.1-million budget for the upcoming school year includes money for the establishment of an alternative high school.

Superintendent Ritchie Kracht says the computer-based system will allow students to work on classes at their own pace.

He says Clark County has talked about an alternative school for years, to aid students who do not succeed in a regular classroom setting.

One northeast Missouri school district will have a little more money to spend during the upcoming school year.

The Clark County R-1 School Board has signed off on the district’s $9.1-million budget. 

Superintendent Ritchie Kracht says the spending plan is balanced… with revenues slightly exceeding expenses.

He says annexing the Revere C-3 School District into Clark County has meant a $200,000 boost in assessed valuation as well as additional state aid.
