Creating Personal Success


  • Transportation Update

    Parents of Clare Students:

    Each year, we aim to improve the efficiency of the transportation department and communication with parents, students, and the community.  This year, we’d ask for your help in keeping us informed of changes in student ridership.

    If your student is a new rider, please contact the bus garage to discuss routing.

    If your student was transported at the end of last year (after we changed to 7 routes), we will continue with those routes at this time.  If you need a reminder of pick-up and drop-off times please let us know. If you are no longer planning to have your student ride the bus, please  contact the bus garage.

    Bus Garage Number: 989-386-9569


    Our Director of Operations, Owen Malson, will be available in the Clare Primary School office during Open House on August 22, 2018, from 5-6:30 and would be happy to speak with any parents/students about transportation questions.

  • Deadline for school of choice application slated for 2018-2019 school year

    Under the Schools of Choice legislation (Section 105 and Section 105(c) of the School Aid Act), kindergarten through twelfth grade students residing within Clare-Gladwin Regional Education Service District (RESD) and contiguous intermediate school districts may apply to attend Clare Public Schools.

    Transportation for these students is the responsibility of the parents or guardians. Clare Public Schools has unlimited openings in all grades. Request/application must be made no later than the end of the first week of school (Thursday, August 30, 2018, 3:30 p.m.).  Enrollment Packets (Applications) are available at Clare Public Schools central office (201 E. State St.) and at each building office.

    The district may refuse to enroll any applicant who has been suspended within the preceding two years or who has ever been expelled.  Special education students residing in contiguous intermediate school districts (section 105(c)) may only be enrolled if Clare Public Schools and the district of residence have a written agreement regarding payment of added costs, including the agreement of the Clare-Gladwin RESD Superintendent.

    Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors (High School students) who enroll and are accepted by Friday, August 17th, will be assured of a district-issued Chromebook as part of our 1:1 initiative in the high school for use during the school year.  Submit your applications for enrollment as soon as is possible.

    Clare is a great place to live and learn!
