December 2022 Points of Pride

The Clarksville-Montgomery County School Board recognized two CMCSS students with a Point of Pride during the December 2022 formal meeting.

Brooke Mangrum and Kristy Long are members of the Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) at Montgomery Central High School. There are nearly 200,000 middle and high school members from 4,900 chapters across 46 states, the District of Columbia, the American Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. At the National Fall Conference a few weeks ago, Brooke and Kristy excelled above their peers to place in the top 3 in the nation in the Technology in Teaching category. Brooke placed 3rd and earned a $5,000 scholarship to Sullivan University. Kristy placed 1st and earned a $15,000 scholarship. They both received recognition and plaques on the national stage. Mrs. Tucker, Mrs. Houston, and all of us in CMCSS are proud of you, Brooke and Kristy. Congratulations!

2023-2024 Zoning Recommendation

At the CMCSS School Board Study Session on Dec. 6, 2022, Chief Operations Officer Norm Brumblay presented the zoning recommendation for elementary, middle, and high school zone boundaries for the 2023-2024 school year. The recommendation was made by the CMCSS Zoning Project Team in accordance with the established guidelines:

  • Ensure equitable distribution of resources according to the learning needs of all students
  • Consider the proximity of students to existing schools
  • Move as few students as possible
  • Transport students the least distance possible
  • Consider the BEP capacity and percent-utilization of existing facilities
  • Allow for future growth where possible (based on Planning Commission lot and permit data)

Taking these guidelines into consideration, the Zoning Project Team made the following recommendation to the School Board:

  • Elementary: no changes to elementary school zone boundaries for the 2023-2024 school year.
  • Middle: no changes to middle school zone boundaries for the 2023-2024 school year.
  • High: implement the high school rezoning boundaries that were approved in February 2022 with the opening of Kirkwood High School for the 2023-2024 school year. 
    • Families of students enrolled in grades 9-11 who reside at addresses affected by high school rezoning received communications in October about options. Families of current 8th-grade students cannot opt out of high school rezoning.
  • Portables will be used to balance capacities across all school zones.
