Rezoning Plan Approved

Good evening, CMCSS families,

At tonight’s special called voting session, the School Board voted to approve the final rezoning plan for middle schools effective the 2022-2023 school year and high schools effective the 2023-2024 school year. No elementary boundaries are affected by this rezoning. 

This vote included the following rezoning phase-in plan:

Middle School Students in Rezoned Areas

Allow a choice for all currently enrolled 6th- and 7th-grade students to attend either their currently assigned middle school or their newly assigned middle school in 2022-2023. Transportation must be provided by the family if they opt out of rezoning to stay at their currently enrolled school. This choice will only apply for the student’s middle school attendance. Once the student reaches high school, he or she will be expected to attend their zoned high school. 

High School Students in Rezoned Areas

Allow a choice for all currently enrolled 8th-, 9th- and 10th-grade students to attend either their currently assigned high school or their newly assigned high school in 2023-2024. If they opt out of rezoning to stay at their currently assigned school, transportation must be provided by the family or the student if he/she is able to drive. 

 

Parents/guardians of currently enrolled 6th- and 7th-grade students who live in rezoned areas will receive an electronic rezoning opt-out form via text and/or email on Thursday, February 24. If you have any issues with the electronic form or do not receive one, please contact your child’s school beginning Friday, February 25.

 

Parents/guardians of currently enrolled 8th-, 9th- and 10th-grade students who live in rezoned areas will receive an electronic rezoning opt-out form next school year in advance of the 2023-2024 school year when high school rezoning takes effect.

April 18, 2022 Update

The deadline to request an opt-out to rezoning has passed. Families who did not submit their request must now request a Special Transfer (application found here) or fill out the Open Enrollment Application, if their student meets the school and grade requirements found here.

Family Life Curriculum Development Process Public Meetings

As communicated last semester, effective 2021-2022, all school systems in Tennessee are required to implement a program of family life education (T.C.A. 49-6-1302). In the fall, CMCSS sought feedback from teachers, parents/guardians, and other stakeholders on three proposed Family Life Curriculum resources that could be used by educators to teach the required components. After reviewing feedback with the CMCSS School Board, District leaders paused the process to seek additional guidance from the Tennessee Department of Education, legal counsel, and other districts across Tennessee. 

CMCSS is inviting all stakeholders to engage in the Family Life Curriculum development process by participating in one of the upcoming public meetings. At the meetings, District personnel will engage with stakeholders to address the following questions: 

  • What materials or textbooks will be used to develop the CMCSS curriculum?
  • How will teachers and students access the curriculum? 
  • What is required to be taught?

Meetings:

  • Tuesday, February 15
    • 10 a.m. at Central Services South – 1312 Highway 48/13, Clarksville, TN 37040
    • 5:30 p.m. at West Creek High School – 1210 West Creek Coyote Trail, Clarksville, TN 37042 (enter at the cafeteria/activities entrance)
  • Thursday, February 17
    • 5:30 p.m. at Central Services South – 1312 Highway 48/13, Clarksville, TN 37040
