Volunteer

Volunteer — Help your student and all students at Clark!

 

Volunteerism is a cornerstone of the Clark program. And that begins with parents lending their time and talent on at least one school committee. Tell us your interests, skills & passion and we will match you to a rewarding volunteer role!

    Instructional Leadership Team (ILT)

    ILT is a school committee mandated by Cincinnati Public Schools which is made up of teacher representatives from all content areas, non-teaching staff, civil service representatives, the Cincinnati Federation of Teachers building representative, principal, assistant principal and two parents. ILT members share leadership and are responsible to make decisions in the following areas:

    • Develop, review and evaluate the instructional program
    • School operations and procedures
    • Staff training
    • All School budgets
    • Safe and orderly school environment
    • Perform all responsibilities assigned by the CFT Contract

    Meetings are held on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 3:45.

    ILT is currently in need of parent representatives! Contact Co-chairs Josh Roderer or Brad Meyers if you are interested in being part of this vital committee.
