Four School Expansions Funded

The Montgomery County Commission has approved funding for expansions of four CMCSS schools. The projects, totaling $14.6 million,  will be located at Northeast Middle, Northeast High, Minglewood Elementary and Barkers Mill Elementary to address the burgeoning population growth in those areas.

 

According to CMCSS Director of Schools Millard House, “We appreciate the County Commission’s support and the County Mayor’s leadership in helping the school system appropriately serve our community’s children. With the population growth in Clarksville-Montgomery County, we want to respond with providing adequate educational facilities for optimal student learning environments.”

 

Chief Operations Officer Jim Sumrell added, “Plans are in place to begin construction in March of all four school expansions, with preparation work starting immediately. There will be temporary adjustments for students, their families and our staff as we begin work on the buildings, with changes to traffic patterns as one example. Principals at all four schools will share communication with their stakeholders to continuously inform them of potential impacts. Plans are to have the projects complete by mid-school year 2018-19.”

 

Student populations in CMCSS have grown by around 2,500 students over the past two years. The expansions will add 46 classrooms among the four schools.

Early College and Career Options

Currently, CMCSS offers innovative programs like the Academies of CMCSS in all seven of the traditional high schools. Additionally, each high school offers options like dual enrollment, Advanced Placement (AP), and Career Technical Education (CTE) courses.

 

“CMCSS is committed to ensuring that multiple college and career pathways exist,” stated Millard L. House II, Director of Schools. “Our hope is to build on to the foundation for a strong workforce, an improved quality of life, and a strengthened basis for success for our students.”

 

CMCSS will offer two new programs: CMCSS at Nashville State Community College (NSCC) and CMCSS at Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT). Both of these programs will offer students hands-on learning experiences and opportunities to earn industry certifications while completing the necessary high school courses for graduation.

 

CMCSS at NSCC will be offering certifications in both Early Childhood Education and Logistics. At CMCSS at TCAT, students can work towards certifications in Diesel Powered Equipment Technology, Industrial Maintenance and Electricity, Pharmacy Technician, and HVAC/Refrigeration.

 

“One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to education,” said Dr. Jean Luna, CMCSS Director of High Schools. “It is important for us to offer as many options as possible to meet the needs of our diverse student body. By providing numerous industry-aligned and student-interest-based pathways, we can empower our students to make choices that help them achieve their career and life goals.”

 

In addition to the new programs, the Middle College at Austin Peay State University (APSU) has revised its program and will be offering two different pathways. The Transitional Middle College Pathway will be similar to the current Middle College program with some enhancements. The Associate Degree Pathway will allow students who complete their junior and senior years the opportunity to graduate with both a high school diploma and an APSU Associate Degree.

 

“All three of these programs are made possible through partnerships with the three post-secondary institutions,” stated Luna. “Through these collaborations, we are able to combine resources and expertise to better meet the needs and goals of students and provide our community with a highly-qualified workforce.”

 

CMCSS personnel will be visiting all district high schools to share these options with current sophomores. Additionally, there will be a current sophomore parent interest meeting onMonday, Feb. 5 at 6 p.m. in the Ann Hunter Board Room at CMCSS Central Services Gracey.
