2018-2019 School Start and End Times

Beginning with the 2018-2019 school year, we are happy to announce that we are able to extend our elementary instructional day by 40 minutes. This adjustment will ensure that our students have the same instructional minutes/educational opportunities as other elementary students across the state. Our teachers will be able to utilize the additional time for classroom instruction, enrichment activities, group learning and more. We believe this change will help our students learn and achieve more, which in turn will better prepare them for the next phase of their educational journey.

Making this change will alter the start and end times for all four of our school buildings. We are happy to make these adjustments because this is what is best for our students and our students deserve nothing less than the best!

The 2018-2019 start/dismissal and bus route times for all CCSC Schools are as follows:

2018-2019 School Calendar

As a reminder, the 2018-2019 school calendar will be changed from a balanced calendar to a hybrid traditional calendar, which means that our 2018-2019 school start date will be August 8th.  This will allow a 2-week longer summer break and increase instructional time prior to state-wide testing. This calendar also aligns with the other schooldistricts in our county (West Clark and Greater Clark). I have attached a copy for your review.

Lastly, for your convenience, we have opened registration earlier this year. This means that you can register your student(s) NOW by logging in to your Campus Portal account and clicking on the “Online Registration” link or by going to our website at:  www.clarksvilleschools.org, clicking on the “RESOURCES” tab and then on the “To Register your student” link. Instructions for registering your student, setting up a Campus Portal account and recovering your Campus Portal credentials can also be found on that page. Our goal is to have all returning students registered by May 24th.

Enjoy the remainder of this school year and we look forward to seeing everyone this fall!

Best Regards,

Tina Bennett

Superintendent

Important Message From Superintendent

February 15th, 2018

Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members:

We were deeply saddened to hear the news of the school shooting that occurred Wednesday, February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Our thoughts and deepest sympathy are with the families affected and all members of that community.

We want to ensure you that the safety of our students and staff is our top priority at Clarksville Community Schools. We take seriously our responsibility to ensure the safety of your child every day.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind all of our families that we have a plan in place at each of our schools to handle emergency situations and continuously work to evaluate such plans to ensure they are relevant and up to date. We are fortunate to work with the Clarksville Police and Fire departments to prepare for all types of emergencies that may occur, including having a School Resource Officer on campus at all times. As a county, we continuously evaluate our safety plan through quarterly meetings of school administrators and first responders with the Clark County Safety Coalition.

As school administrators, we are troubled by events like what occurred in Florida. However, senseless tragedies such as this provide us with the opportunity to be leaders as we help our children to understand, also reminding them that, as the adults in their lives, we do everything we can to keep them safe. As always, we urge anyone to report any type of concerning social media messages, behavior, etc. to your child’s school immediately.

Thank you for your continued support of Clarksville Community Schools.
Best,

Tina Bennett
Superintendent

2018-2019 School Calendar Approved by Board

The Clarksville Community Board of School Trustees unanimously approved the 2018-19 school calendar at the Regular Meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 12. CCSC will be transitioning to a “modified” balanced calendar with one week breaks during the fall and spring in exchange for a two week longer summer break.

This calendar will allow for more instructional time for students prior to state testing, more days in the summer to prepare for the upcoming school year (staffing & facilities) and a longer summer for families.

Area superintendents collaborated to align, as closely as possible, the calendars of public school districts within Clark County.
