Clarksville-Montgomery County School System (CMCSS)
Montgomery County, TN – Due to special elections announced last week by the Montgomery County Election Commission, two dates in the 2019 Clarksville-Montgomery County School System (CMCSS) spring semester calendar will be changed to teacher professional development days with no students reporting.
It has been the practice of CMCSS, as advised by the Department of Homeland Security, to not have students present in polling precincts on election days for safety reasons.
Seventeen CMCSS schools are designated polling precincts.
Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam set the two election dates for Dr. Mark Green’s unexpired term in the State Senate, with a primary election on March 7th and the general election on April 23rd.
In response to the newly set election days, the early release day that was scheduled on March 1st will become a regular, full day for students. March 7th will become a staff development day with no students reporting. April 23rd will become a staff development day, again with no students reporting. The Clarksville-Montgomery County School System will use one of its five stockpile days, not associated with its Inclement Weather Plan, for April 23rd.
