CLINTON — During a discussion regarding goals for Clinton school Supt.

Wingerd told the board he is waiting for a letter from the district’s attorney for instructions on how to proceed with the evaluation.There is a question on whether the evaluation has been completed properly since no goals have been developed. Heinz shared five goals she drafted, which were reviewed by the board and McNatt.
