Did You Know?

Many parents are asking us these questions right now, and we're here to provide answers and assistance.


  • My child was thriving while learning virtually, and we're considering enrolling in the SCS Virtual School for 2021-22. Will my child have CLUE? All CLUE Services will be provided in-person for 2021-22. While students keep their gifted IEP for consultation with a teacher at the SCS Virtual School, there are no CLUE services provided for students enrolled in the Virtual School. When your child returns to a school site, we would hold an IEP meeting to update services at that time. The same is true if you leave the district and come back; we would hold an IEP meeting to update services and work with you to return to CLUE.
  • When will I be notified about placement in CLUE Camp? All parents have already been notified, as every student whose parent registered was given a space in CLUE Camp. Because we are observing social distancing, which requires small class sizes, our camps are full at this time. If you have specific questions, please email us at clue@scsk12.org.
  • How may I get a copy of my child's IEP paperwork over the summer? The CLUE Office is open all year. Just email us at clue@scsk12.org, and we will help you obtain whatever you need.

Dr. Roberts has been an educator for over 20 years, serving in both the gifted and the regular education classrooms. She is passionate about education and learning and has served on various committees and in numerous capacities within education, including the School Instructional Leadership Team, the Tennessee Education Commission Advisory Council, and as a TNCORE Trainer for new curriculum models throughout Tennessee.

Education is of the utmost importance to Dr. Roberts . She holds five degrees including two Bachelors’ degrees from the University of Memphis in the areas of Elementary Education and Information Technology. She earned two degrees from Arkansas State University including a Master of Science in the Theory and Practice of Teaching as well as an Education Specialist degree in Educational Leadership and School Superintendency.

She is also an active member of the music department by singing in the Sanctuary Choir and on the Praise and Worship Team.
