CMCSS will not include the TCAP state standardized test results as part of students’ final grades this school year. CMCSS updated the District grading policy in 2015 to align with T.C.A. § 49-1-617. District policy states that students’ TCAP scores will not be included in their final spring semester grades if the TCAP scores are not received by the District at least five instructional days before the end of the academic year. As CMCSS nears the end of the school year and finalizes student grades, the raw scores were not received within the last five instructional days and will not be included.
As a reminder, the last half day of school is Wednesday, May 25.

On Tuesday, May 10, the School Board voted to select Dr. Jean Luna-Vedder as the next Director of Schools. Dr. Luna-Vedder currently serves as the Chief of Student Readiness for the Tennessee Department of Education. She has been a resident of Clarksville-Montgomery County since 2007, and previously served in CMCSS as a teacher, assistant principal, principal, and Director of High Schools. The Board will begin contract negotiations, and Dr. Luna-Vedder is expected to begin as the CMCSS Director of Schools in July.
For more information on Dr. Luna-Vedder from her application packet, click here.
CMCSS is reaching out with two operational updates for the 2022-2023 school year. Please note these changes will not take effect until next school year. We want to provide families with as much advance notice as possible.
End of USDA Waiver and No-Cost Meals
The USDA has not indicated that they will be extending the waiver for school districts to continue offering no-cost student meals for the 2022-2023 school year. For the past two school years, CMCSS has been able to provide breakfast and lunch meals at no cost to students each school day because of the USDA’s waivers.
At this time, unless CMCSS receives notification otherwise from the USDA, the district will be required to return to its normal meal payment methods in August. Families will continue to be highly encouraged to preload funds on a student’s online account. More information will be communicated before next school year, but below are the meal prices:
Elementary Student Meal Prices
Breakfast (Full Pay): $1.00
Breakfast (Reduced): $0.30
Lunch (Full Pay): $2.65
Lunch (Reduced): $0.40
Secondary Student Meal Prices
Breakfast (Full Pay): $1.15
Breakfast (Reduced): $0.30
Lunch (Full Pay): $2.85
Lunch (Reduced): $0.40
It will be extremely important that all families who believe their children qualify for free or reduced meals complete the application for the 2022-2023 school year. CMCSS will provide more information on the application over the summer and at the beginning of next school year. Applications for next school year cannot be completed until later in July. Applications must be submitted and approved each school year for a student to receive benefits.
Transportation Parent Responsibility Zone
In an effort to improve transportation services while facing the ongoing local, state, and national bus driver shortage, CMCSS is updating its transportation routes and qualifications for the 2022-2023 school year.
State law establishes that school districts may provide school transportation for children who live more than 1 ½ miles from their zoned school. CMCSS has exceeded the expectations of the state law to provide transportation to elementary students who live more than half a mile (.5) from their zoned school and middle and high school students who live more than a mile (1) from their zoned school.
Effective the 2022-2023 school year, CMCSS will be expanding the radius of the parent responsibility zone (PRZ), the area in which families are responsible for providing transportation (car rider, walker, etc.), by half a mile for both elementary and secondary students to:
1 mile for elementary students
1 ½ miles for middle and high school students
For student safety, transportation will still be provided for students who live in the PRZ under the following travel conditions:
4 or more lanes of traffic without a crossing guard
Roads with insufficient road width (less than 24 ft.) with speeds above 35 mph
Roads with no sidewalks with speeds above 35 mph
This change will not impact students who receive Special Populations transportation services as indicated in their IEPs.
Any future development within the PRZ that has accessible safe travel paths may not be eligible for CMCSS transportation.
If a daycare is in the PRZ, CMCSS will not provide transportation.
The Transportation Department will be directly contacting families who have students in the 1/2 mile expanded zone. Click here for more information and interactive maps of the PRZ for each school.
