Enrollment and Graduation

Current Tennessee state legislature dictates all children in the state of Tennessee must attend school from age 6 until the end of their 17th year (TCA 49-6-3001). State legislature also states parents can be taken to court for their children not going to school or providing “adequate excuse” of why they are not in school (TCA 49-6-3007). Based on these laws schools must provide adequate/appropriate proof of students’ enrollment in subsequent schools/programs when leaving the district. The types of proof/documentation vary based on the type of withdrawal.

 

In order to support schools in the tracking of students necessary to meet these state laws you may access the CMCSS Enrollment Support Manual HERE.
