CMCSS families received information today on several topics including:

❤️Anti-Bullying Month

October is anti-bullying month, and CMCSS’ theme this year is “Lead With.” Our goal is to center around the concept of conscious actions. We can all choose to lead with the values of kindness, respect, honesty, gratitude, and empathy. Throughout the month, check out our social media for posts and videos about the campaign.

🇺🇸 Impact Aid

Federal Impact Aid is set up for school districts where federally owned lands (such as Fort Campbell, government buildings, TVA power plants, subsidized housing, etc.) are located. Its intent is to help offset the lost property taxes that would have been collected if businesses or privately owned residences were located there instead.

After Fall Break, families will receive links to an electronic survey. The survey is confidential and has no effect on personal taxes or on those who live in subsidized housing. We ask all families to please complete the survey by November 15, 2022.

👨‍👧 Parent and Guardian Survey

In the coming days, all parents/guardians will receive links via text and/or email to complete the annual parent/guardian survey. Last year, we received around 11,000 responses, but we would love to hear from all families. The survey takes just a few minutes to complete, and we ask all families to please complete the survey. Your feedback is extremely important and helps our schools and the District as a whole improve our services.

🙂 Social and Emotional Learning Resources

In the 2021-22 parent/guardian survey, almost two-thirds of families indicated that addressing social and emotional learning (SEL) should be a top priority for CMCSS. All schools continue to assess and address the resources and supports available to ensure they meet students’ social and emotional needs. CMCSS’ SEL resources and supports are aligned with state laws and the Tennessee Department of Education’s social and personal competencies and school counselor model and standards.

CMCSS will provide social and personal competencies instructional resources for teachers. The District has engaged educators to review multiple resources and provide feedback. After vetting by educators, the next phase is to engage families in the review process to help inform the District’s selection of resources.

Mr. Matt Slight, Director of Social and Emotional Learning, has set up SEL curriculum review and feedback sessions. At these sessions, families will have the opportunity to review resources, learn more about how SEL resources will be utilized, and provide feedback. These are open sessions, and families can arrive anytime within the timeframes below.

See the meeting times and locations here: bit.ly/3SN431m

🚌 StopFinder Pilot

To improve communications about transportation services, the Operations, Technology, and Communications departments are collaborating to pilot the StopFinder application at a few schools. StopFinder seamlessly integrates with the service the District uses for bus routing to provide parents/guardians with bus locations, messages, updates, and alerts in real time.

The pilot will begin at a few select schools at different levels in different geographical regions of the community after Fall Break. Families at those schools will receive additional information. After testing the application, receiving feedback from families, and making necessary adjustments and improvements, CMCSS intends to roll the application out to all families next semester.

📅Fall Break Reminder

As a reminder, Fall Break is a little over a week away. Schools will be closed October 10-14. We hope everyone has a safe, relaxing, and fun break!

Clarksville-Montgomery County School System

Community Helper Day at Barkers Mill Elementary was a mix of fun and education as students had the chance to meet people from across the community. Students saw the various careers essential for a thriving community, from logistics and transportation to first responders and military units.

Cindy Croley is a former firefighter who now serves as a Kindergarten teacher. She said her students are excited about meeting people and asking questions. "It's to educate them, to know what they can do in the future, and understand what these people do for our community," she said. "They've had so much fun today."

After retiring from his military career, Don White wanted to find a way to remain involved with serving our community, especially younger people. That's when he set his sights on teaching. Mr. White currently serves as a 6th-grade math teacher at Northeast Middle School.

"I love coming to work and hearing [students'] great stories or seeing those moments of discovery take place," he said. "Being able to connect and help a student who may be struggling in school or outside of school. I want them to know they have someone who genuinely cares about them and their well-being!"
