Dear families,

Principal Emilean Clemons has decided to retire after spending 33 years of service with Polk County Public Schools.

Throughout her career, Dr. Clemons has demonstrated outstanding leadership. Her service includes 10 years as an assistant principal at Bartow High and another 10 years as the school’s principal.

We appreciate her dedication to her students and staff as well as wish her the very best in her retirement and future endeavors.

Dr. Clemons will continue to serve as principal of Bartow High through June 2023.

However, Polk County Public Schools must now begin the search for her replacement.

We want to receive input from all of our school’s stakeholders, including parents, guardians, community members, teachers and non-instructional staff.

That’s why we are scheduling a stakeholder meeting on Monday, Dec. 5.

The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. inside Bartow High’s cafeteria.

All stakeholders are welcome to join this meeting. District officials will be present to receive your written input regarding this search for the next principal of Bartow High.

Hope to see you there!
