Clarksville Montgomery County School System issues statement on Students Attending School

Clarksville-Montgomery County School System - CMCSSClarksville, TN – Circuit Court Judge William Goodman has issued a temporary restraining order that allows three students to return to their most recently attended schools until a hearing can be held to address their school zone residency.

A lawsuit was filed on October 22nd challenging the Clarksville Montgomery County School System’s position that they should be attending schools in a different attendance zone.

The students’ parents received letters advising them to enroll their students at their zoned schools and those schools were prepared to accept the students’ enrollment immediately.

However, the students were never enrolled in the different attendance zone and the students have not attended school since October 9th. Fall break was October 12th-16th.

This order is not a decision on the merits of the case and was issued without notice to the School System. All parties agree that it is in the best interests of the students to be in school. The School System will present facts addressing the allegations of the Petition at the hearing of this matter, said Katherine Olita, attorney for CMCSS.
