The Clarksville-Montgomery County School System continues to exceed expectations for its students. An external review team from the AdvancED Accreditation Commission recommended that the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System earn the distinction of accreditation by AdvancED.
CMCSS earned four Powerful Practices designations, which are areas in which the district excels. According to Judy Wesley, review team chair, “I have led in some districts where there were noPowerful Practices. Very often, maybe one.” To be recognized for four Powerful Practices, is exceptional. Wesley also recognized CMCSS for being one of the top performing school districts in the state and nation.
Overall, CMCSS exceeded average network scores in all categories. In Teaching and Learning, CMCSS scored 296.43, almost 30 points above the average score of 268.94. In Leadership Capacity, CMCSS earned 293.75 with a network average of 292.64. And, in Resource Utilization, CMCSS earned a 303.12 compared to a 283.86 average. The district’s overall score of 296.95 exceeds the average score of 278.34 for all 32,000 districts in the network.
Dr. Worthington, Director of Schools, and members of the School Board thanked teachers, administrators, and the entire community for their hard work and support of district’s vision that all students graduate college and career ready.
