• What's new this year?

    Cell Phone Free Schools

    Starting this school year, CMSD schools will implement the Yonder Program to enhance the student learning experience and academic performance by creating cell-phone-free environments. Scholars will store their phones in secure pouches, which will remain in their possession throughout the school day.

  • Grade Book

    Parents across the District will now have online access to student grades in real-time. Parents will also be able to update their contact information and communicate with teachers.

    More information to come.
