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.

A public hearing will be held on Jan. 3, 2023, at 5:30 p.m., and a final zoning recommendation will be presented to the School Board on Jan. 17, 2023, for approval.

The 2022-23 Basketball Season is Here!

Welcome to the 2022-23 Basketball Season. We are excited for our student athletes and hope for a great season.

Please remember, ALL tickets will be available on GoFan. Prices are $6 ($5 for the school and $1 for GoFan processing fee) There will be no cash taken at the gate. You will need to have your ticket loaded on your device when you come in any building and the person at the gate will need to validate it for you. Please DO NOT VALIDATE tickets yourself. Please make sure you have it on your screen ready to go before you enter the building; most buildings have terrible cell service. You may sign in on the Guest Wifi and that will help immensely.

If you are allowing your child to attend alone, please make sure they are able to pull up that ticket for us to validate. We cannot validate screenshots of tickets.

When you search for tickets on GoFan, make sure you search the host school and that it is Clarksville TN.

JV plays at 4:30. Varsity Girls play at 5:45 and Varsity Boys play at approximately 6:45.

Below is a link to the season schedule.

CMCSS Football Spectator Policy

CMCSS strongly believes in the importance of interscholastic athletic events and welcoming the community onto our campuses. However, providing a safe and secure environment on our campuses must always be the top priority. In an effort to improve safety and security, the following policies will be implemented for all spectators at high school football games on our campuseseffective immediatelyInitially, the following policies are only for football games due to the number of spectators; however, policies for other athletic events at the high school and middle school levels will be evaluated and communicated ahead of those seasons.

  • Bag Policy: CMCSS strongly encourages spectators not to bring any bags. The following is the bag policy for all spectators:
    • One (1) clear tote bag (plastic, vinyl, or PVC) per person is permitted.
      • Clear totes should not exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12,” and schools have the discretion to prohibit any oversized clear tote bags.
    • One (1) one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziplock bag or similar) per person is permitted.
    • Clear bags cannot be tinted or have large graphics that obstruct visibility.
    • Approved family care items (diapers, formula, etc.) must be included in the clear plastic tote bag
    • All bags are subject to be searched.
    • Prohibited items: include, but are not limited to: purses, fanny packs, backpacks, duffel bags, coolers, briefcases, diaper bags, cinch bags, luggage of any kind, and computer bags.
    • Exceptions: students participating in the event (athletes, cheerleaders, musicians, etc.), officials/referees, and CMCSS employees or employees from visiting out-of-district schools may bring bags that are necessary for the event. Bags necessary for approved medical equipment are permitted.
  • Adult Supervision Policy: Children who are middle-school age or younger must be accompanied by an adult, preferably a parent/guardian, for entry into the athletic event.
    • High-school-age students from the home school, visiting school, or community may attend the game without being accompanied by an adult.
    • Anyone who violates CMCSS rules will be removed from the event and/or banned from attending events. Law enforcement and/or school officials will contact parents/guardians of students/juveniles and there could be school-based (for students) and/or criminal consequences for offenses in the Student Code of Conduct and/or breaking the law.
  • No Re-Entry Policy: CMCSS will continue to enforce a no re-entry policy in all athletic venues. If a spectator leaves the venue, they will not be readmitted, unless there are extenuating circumstances as approved by school officials. Spectators must purchase tickets via GoFan. Tickets will not be sold on-site.
  • Increased Law Enforcement: In collaboration with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and the Clarksville Police Department, there will be additional officers employed at every athletic event, in the venue and around the campus. Please note: all persons, personal items, and vehicles are subject to be searched on school property.
  • Limiting Capacities: Depending on multiple factors, including venue capacity, availability of law enforcement and emergency medical services, and anything deemed a safety or security risk, capacities could be limited and ticket sales restricted. CMCSS offers streaming of most high school athletic events via NFHS Network.

Notice: At the discretion of school officials, additional policies or modifications to the above policies may be implemented and enforced.
