CMCSS Recognized for Exemplary Services to Supporting Students

The Tennessee Department of Education has selected the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System as one of six districts to be named as an Exemplary ACCESS District. ACCESS is the acronym for All Children are Challenged and Equipped for Success in School.

 

CMCSS was recognized for its intensive work and exceptional dedication to providing ACCESS for all students to high quality instruction and intervention over the past two years through the State Personnel Development Grant (SPDG).

 

This designation is based on training participation data, dedication to the grant design, improvements in teaching methods, improvements in Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) quality, improvements in reading screener scores, and efforts to expand the trainings systemwide. The department is announced this recognition during two sessions at the Partners in Education (PIE) Conference this January.

 

This work has given CMCSS the opportunity to partner with TDOE and 29 other districts across the state as we impact each student in every facet of their education in the least restrictive setting. This dedication to our educators and students has, and will continue to, positively affect all students in CMCSS for many years to come. These efforts are helping to ensure that All Children are Challenged and Equipped for Success in School.  District SPDG supervisor Rebecca Britt and SPDG facilitators Elaine Hoffert and Debbie Jones, are dedicated to continued opportunities for schools to participate in SPDG 1.0 and 2.0 trainings as schools continue to build upon the success of the grant and create positive, motivating, empowering learning environments throughout the district.

Spring Semester Calendar Change

Due to special elections announced last week by the Montgomery County Election Commission, two dates in the 2019 CMCSS spring semester calendar will be changed to teacher professional development days with no students reporting.

It has been the practice of CMCSS, as advised by the Department of Homeland Security, to not have students present in polling precincts on election days for safety reasons. Seventeen CMCSS schools are designated polling precincts.

Gov. Bill Haslam set the two election dates for Dr. Mark Green’s unexpired term in the State Senate, with a primary election on March 7 and the general election on April 23.

In response to the newly set election days, the early release day that was scheduled on March 1 will become a regular, full day for students. March 7 will become a staff development day with no students reporting. April 23 will become a staff development day, again with no students reporting. CMCSS will use one of its five stockpile days, not associated with its Inclement Weather Plan, for April 23.
