CMS expects to have 2,665 more students than last year. This year all schools will hand out photo ID badges to students. CMS Deputy Superintendent Ann Clark says that’s part of the district’s efforts to strengthen security.
“We already have all staff wearing IDs in the district. This will allow all students and staff at every school to have a photo ID badge, so that we will be able to identify visitors to the campus that may need to check in at the front office,” says Clark.
