IOWA JOBS for AMERICA’S GRADUATES (IJAG)

The Clinton Community School District is pleased to announce that it will begin offering services of Iowa Jobs for America’s Graduates (iJAG) starting in December at Clinton Middle School.  The plan will be to expand the program to Clinton High School in subsequent years.

The following description of the mission of the iJAG program can be found on their website:

iJAG is the premier non-profit organization connecting business and education to provide the most cost-effective dropout prevention and school to career solutions in Iowa. Students in the iJAG program have trouble making it in a conventional classroom because of the distractions and barriers at home, outside the classroom or even inside the classroom. Relying on real-world, project-based instructional methods and an unconventional approach to personal connections with students, the iJAG teaching specialists work within conventional learning environments to help remove barriers and show students how to achieve the next step of their career or education. 

Clinton Community Schools is excited to offer this program service to its students.  If you have questions about the program, please contact me at gdelacy@clintonia.org.

Thank you for your support of Clinton Schools!
