City of Clay School Committee

Recent Work:
The committee is reviewing a comparison of the Clay and Chalkville schools to other Jefferson County Schools and Trussville City Schools. 

One program this committee is pursuing is arranging for a retired teacher to organize a reading program where Clay-Chalkville High School students tutor the elementary students in reading. Many high school students need service hours, and their assistance in improving reading skills of younger students will will give them a boost toward later academic achievement.

Committee Function:
Clay residents take great pride on the stellar education available to their children.  The school committe consists of a group of concerned parents, teachers and Clay residents who are focused on assisting the schools in the feeder pattern of Clay Elementary, Chalkville Elementary, Clay-Chalkville High School and Clay-Chalkville Middle School. The committee will concentrate community effort in assisting these schools to improve the learning environment, supporting and encouraging teachers and serving as a point of contact for the community to the school, should they so desire. This committee makes recommendations to the Clay City Council, which makes final decisions on projects requiring city funding.

This area is of great importance, as the schools are a drawing card for people to move to the area. The school committee encourages Clay residents to attend their meetings and join them in working toward improving Clay area schools.

Meetings are the fourth Thursday of the month at the Community Center at 6 p.m.

Members of this committee are:
  • Steve Ostaseski - Co-Chairman
  • Mark Sims - Co-Chairman
  • Heather Cagle
  • Dana La Russa
  • Christie McKee
  • Jaice Pyle
  • Pat Summers
  • Kristie Tillery
Councilor Becky Johnson is the liaison between the Clay City Council and the school committee.

Mission Statement:
The committee mission is to develop community partnerships that aid the school system in delivering a quality education. The goal is to enhance the learning environment and support and encourage the teachers. The objective is to help the school system deliver their best product to their clients, the students. In support of this mission, the committee may make funding recommendations to the city of Clay; the Clay City Council makes all funding decisions.
