Prides themselves on the ability to offer services to all students with special needs that are located within the boundaries of the school district.  A vast majority of our student’s needs are successfully met at the student’s neighborhood school.  For those students who require expertise in social communication skills, the district has programs that focus on students Multiple Disabilities, Autism, and Emotional Disturbance.  While these programs are not located at every school, West Clermont strives to keep children as close to home as possible.

Provides a Response to Intervention process when students are struggling at school.  The goal of the Response to Intervention is to identify an action plan that will improve the student’s academic, behavioral, or social skills.  Based on data collected in the classroom, teachers may provide automatic interventions and document these on a Tier 2 intervention form.  If a more intensive, individualized plan is needed, the teacher will schedule a Tier 3 meeting with parents and other support personnel, as needed.  A collaborative plan will be developed at the meeting with parent input.  Parental involvement is a very important part of this process

PTO is very active meeting monthly in order to plan, organize and fund skating parties, fundraisers, financial support for field trips, programs, and classrooms, as well as a host of other supports during the year.

In 1955, Summerside Elementary School was constructed on Vermona Street.  It was the first West Clermont Elementary school building. An addition to the school was put on in 1956, 1960 and 1964.  In 1985, Summerside Kindergarten students were bused temporarily to Clough Pike Elementary School due to room shortage at Summerside. Our building is situated on five acres of land which provides an opportunity for our students to interact more fully with the environment.  .
