CMCSS Continues Forward Momentum with State Data Release

(Aug. 15, 2019) The Tennessee Department of Education released the state’s report card data for Tennessee school districts today. As the state works to transition through the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requirements, TNReady legislations, standards and proficiency shifts, CMCSS continues to experience forward momentum in meeting the vision that all students graduate college and career ready. CMCSS continues to outperform the state across multiple measures, experience a graduation rate above the state and national levels, and is home to multiple reward schools. “From this partial data release the State is providing, we can cull some information and trends. We will have to wait on the full release of data to form a complete picture of the School System’s performance,” said Director of Schools Millard House. The state will not be assigning grades to the 2018-19 data results. In addition, the new accountability system utilizes a scale based on a score of 0-4. Essentially an average score of 3.1 – 4 has a determination of “exemplary”, a score of 2.1 – 3.0 has a determination of “advancing”, a score of 1.1 – 2.1 has a determination of “satisfactory”,and a score less than 1.1 has a determination of “marginal”. “In reviewing the data as a district we see overall improvement in math and chronic absenteeism at all grade levels. As we evaluate high school data, CMCSS is experiencing positive momentum across all measures to include graduation rate, ready graduate, achievement, and chronic absenteeism. Elementary and middle schools follow suit with positive trends in math achievement, chronic absenteeism, and elementary achievement,” according to Dr. Sean Impeartrice, Chief Academic Officer for CMCSS. “We have identified targeted areas of work as the state continues to improve the rigor of standards and demonstration of proficiency for the state of Tennessee. Our challenges include middle school English/Language […]

Excited Kids

Excited for the 2019-20 school year to start? Here’s what you need to know!

When does school start? Wednesday, Aug. 7 is the first half day, and Friday, Aug. 9 is the first full day. How do I register my child? If your K through 12th-grade student is new to Clarksville-Montgomery County Schools or is transferring between schools, enroll online by visiting https://enroll.cmcss.net. New this year, the CMCSS Enrollment Center, located at 430 Greenwood Ave., is open M-F, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., throughout the calendar year when district offices are open. The Enrollment Center serves as a centralized location for parents and guardians to register their children and obtain documentation, resources, and support for the enrollment process. Parents and guardians are able to complete the registration process at the Enrollment Center, including the ability to submit important registration documents such as birth certificates, health forms, statement of residence, etc., which will be scanned and sent electronically to the school at which the child is zoned. Parents and guardians still have the option to complete the enrollment process at their child’s zoned school when buildings are open and staff is available during the school year. High School offices open on July 16. Elementary and Middle School offices open July 18.



Pre-K for the 2019-2020 School Year

Vaccinations at Onsite

Vaccinations Help Prevent Serious Illness

Parents, as flu season approaches, please consider having your child vaccinated. Over 1,485 American children have died from seasonal flu (or influenza) in the past decade, and 50 of those children were from Tennessee.  Countless other children became seriously ill with this virus. The flu vaccine offers the best available protection from the risk of flu death.

“We have identified targeted areas of work as the state continues to improve the rigor of standards and demonstration of proficiency for the state of Tennessee. Our challenges include middle school English/Language Arts and high school Algebra I. As the data continues to come in, we will better diagnose and prescribe teacher training in the specific areas of English/Language Arts and Algebra,” he said, adding “We take pride in our 10 Reward Schools and commit to a continued focus to use our data to guide our work through the continuous improvement model.

The data comes from the following:
• The TNReady test administered in April (Spring each year), results are posted in the report card, student paper reports are sent home in the first report card of the year. The schools and district receive the results through the state’s secure website;
• End of Course (EOC) exams for high school in the following classes: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, English I, English II, U.S. History for 2018-19;
• Graduation Rate has not been released, but in 2017-18 = 94.2, we are expecting 2018-19 to be 94.5
• Attendance/Absentee data: Chronic absenteeism data represents to percent of students who miss great than 10 percent of the academic year. The goal for the state is to be below 10 percent; the district is 8.1% of 34,816 in 2018-19 was absent greater than 10% of the year;
• ELPA, English Language Learner Proficiency assessment. Percent of students meeting the expected growth standard, 54.2%
