Clarkdale Administration


Dr. Liss A. Maynard


It is such a joy and honor to be the principal at Clarkdale Elementary School.  I am super excited about our “star-studded” year and our ‘five-star’ approach to teaching and learning.   It is my hope that you engage in our efforts to increase overall student achievement and success.  Again, this year, our students will have SWAG- Students with Academic Goals.  This will allow a laser sharp focus on specific academic performance for all students.  I thank you in advance for all that you do to support your child(ren) and Clarkdale as we strive to become a National School of Excellence!
