CMCSS offers several non-traditional schools and programs of choice for students. These innovative programs are designed to provide families the opportunity to choose schools and programs that will help their children reach their potential. In January 2024, the open enrollment period will begin for schools and programs of choice for the 2024-25 school year. Please click here to learn more about CMCSS’ schools and programs of choice, upcoming interest meetings, and application information.

Schools of Choice: CMCSS K-12 Virtual, Spanish Immersion at Barksdale Elementary, Moore Magnet STEM Elementary, Early Technical College at TCAT, and Middle College at APSU

Programs of Choice: Academy of Business and Marketing (Clarksville High School), STEM Academy (Kenwood High School), Supply Chain Management Academy (Kirkwood High School), Academy of Plant and Animal Systems (Montgomery Central High School), Computer Information Technology Academy (Northeast High School), Health Science Academy (Northwest High School), Academy of Media Arts and Technology (Rossview High School), Academy of Law and Criminal Justice (West Creek High School), and Academy of Teaching and Learning (West Creek High School)

For open enrollment in traditional schools, due to elementary rezoning, the district will not be able to post available seats in the December-February timeline. Families will receive notification of open seats and an opportunity for open enrollment upon completion of the rezoning and analysis of capacities, tentatively around March 2024.

Earlier this week, it started to feel like Jack Frost might be nipping at our noses! Winter is coming, and if you are new to Middle Tennessee, hold on tight for an adventurous season of ups and downs. From ice storms and snow to tornadoes and flooding, winter can come with many surprises, and we want to ensure all families know how to receive accurate information about school closings.

The Chief Operations Officer (COO) always errs on the side of caution to ensure the safety of students. To make the best recommendation, the COO looks at weather data and has transportation and operations staff checking the road conditions across Montgomery County. He also studies the radar, attends National Weather Service briefings, and calls forecasters. Sometimes the decision is easy. The more difficult decisions come when there is uncertainty about the timing or the significance of the event.

For school closing decisions, the CMCSS Communications Department will use ParentSquare to notify families. Depending on account settings, you may not always receive a phone call if your phone successfully receives text messages and push notifications via the ParentSquare app. The district will also share inclement weather closure updates on official CMCSS social media accounts,, and local media. Please ensure that you check your sources when viewing school closure information on social media. For official CMCSS social media, follow us @cmcssinfo on Facebook and Instagram.

2023-2024 Inclement Weather Make-Up Plan

The first five days missed by students will not be made up and will come from stockpiled student days.

The sixth day missed and subsequent days will be made up as available:

  • January 3, 2024 (staff development day)
  • February 7, 2024 (staff development day)
  • February 19, 2024 (Presidents Day)
  • Thirty minutes added to thirteen days not to infringe upon the state testing window to account for one make-up day

Days missed beyond this plan will be determined as circumstances require.
