Clay Receives Everfi Empowered District Seal for 2024


Clay Local Schools has earned the Empowered District Seal for 2024.

In 2020, Everfi created this award to recognize districts like Clay that consistently demonstrate a commitment to whole-child education. 


Only 10% of the nation's school districts earned the Empowered District Seal this year. (See other awardees in Ohio)  The EVERFI Empowered Seal is a designation awarded to K-12 school districts that have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to whole-child education through the use of EVERFI’s comprehensive, evidence-informed digital programs in areas such as financial literacy, social-emotional learning, college & career readiness, STEM, and health & wellness.

Districts that have earned the Empowered Seal are eligible to apply for EVERFI's Empowered Seal Grant. Six districts will receive a $1,000 grant for their district's foundation or local non-profit partner.  Clay received the Empowered District Seal in 2021, 2022, & 2023.
