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.

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.
