The CMCSS Learning Centers provide evidence-based, hands-on instruction to preschool age children and also provides themed learning activities for elementary students.
The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) was signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2001. Title I, which is a part of NCLB, provides Federal funding to help schools and districts improve academic performance of disadvantaged students. The Clarksville-Montgomery County School System has 19 elementary schools that qualify for Title I services: Barkers Mill, Barksdale, Burt, Byrns Darden, Cumberland Heights, Glenellen, Hazelwood, Kenwood, Liberty, Minglewood, Montgomery Central, Moore Magnet, Norman Smith, Northeast, Pisgah, Ringgold, St. Bethlehem, West Creek, and Woodlawn.
These schools receive extra funds to support their school programs and to insure that all students reach their highest potential. The primary use of these extra funds has been to increase the number of teachers and educational assistants available at the school site. These persons provide one-on-one and small group instruction for at-risk students.
All Title I teachers and paraprofessionals are highly qualified. Parents may request information about the qualifications of teachers and paraprofessionals who instruct their child.
The Learning Center (343 Pageant Lane ) and The Learning Center North (215 Cunningham Lane-Minglewood Elementary) serve as a resource for parents by providing materials, workshops, and consultations. Parents of students in Head Start, ELL, and CMCSS Elementary Schools are eligible. For more information call:(931) 648-5653 or (931) 647-2778.
