CLARK CO., Ind. (WHAS 11) -- It's up and at 'em for reading writing and arithmetic on the Indiana side of the river.

“We are super excited, this school year we have quite a few new families coming to Greater Clark County Schools,” third grade teacher Sara Endler said.

Four Indiana school districts are starting school July 31. The schools include: New Albany Floyd County, Greater Clark County, West Clark Community, and Clarksville Community.

Buses have started rolling out. Things are in full swing. Lots of excitement in the air as the first day of school begins.

“We’ve really been working for weeks,” Greater Clark County Schools Superintendent Andy Melon, who also introduced a new program for high school students, said. “Students who enter as freshman, by the time they graduate they will not only have earned the graduation requirements for their diploma but also an associate’s degree from Ivy Tech State College.”

The start of the school year is an exciting time for many. We spoke with a couple faculty members, parents and a student about preparing for the big day.
