School district staff and students will be joining the delegation of Clay County businesses and individuals traveling to Tallahassee on Thursday, as the 2017 Florida legislative session begins this week.
“I am excited for our district to showcase the ways we are improving teaching and learning in Clay County to legislators and others doing business in Florida’s Capitol this week,” said Addison Davis, Clay County’s superintendent of schools. “While the theme of this year’s Clay Day in Tallahassee is From Tradition to Today, I’m proud that our community also recognizes the importance of giving our lawmakers clear insight into how we are preparing students for the future.”
Students enrolled in the district’s career and technical education classes will represent their culinary, health science, and agriculture programs. The STEM office will provide a robotics demonstration and other interactive activities for visitors, and the Orange Park High School’s jazz band will play two sets for the audience.
Superintendent Davis, School Board members, and other district leaders will also be present to advocate for Clay County schools with legislators.
