ARLINGTON, VA, Nov. 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tennessee’s Clarksville-Montgomery County School System (CMCSS) is on a mission to bring language learning resources to its diverse community and student body of more than 33,500. As CMCSS also serves military families stationed at nearby Fort Campbell, many students have brought world language experience gained while overseas to the classroom, contributing to the more than 40 languages now being spoken in the district and the need for a comprehensive single solution to meet CMCSS’ diverse language learning needs. To improve and broaden language learning resources for its students and community, CMCSS today announced it has partnered with Rosetta Stone Inc. (NYSE: RST) to extend its world language program to military families and adult learners, in addition to supplementing traditional language learning instruction to its middle and high school students and English-language learners. “Because so many different languages are spoken in our school district, it is critical that the language needs of our highly diverse community are effectively addressed through a proven standardized program,” said Dr. Kimi Sucharski, District Accountability and Data Analyst, Clarksville-Montgomery County School System. “We are proud to be able to offer these languages and resources to our students, especially for our international and English-language learners, from such a trusted and reputable partner. Our students are so comfortable working in an online environment – this just made sense.” The digital program assesses the language proficiency of newly arrived students and provides a learning resource for previously internationally-based students to continue their studies when no certified teachers are available in a student’s target language. Middle and high school students and adult learners also have access to the program outside of the classroom to study at their own pace. Rosetta Stone is being made available to middle school students looking to get early exposure to a new language, and eighth-graders can access the program for high school credit. The district also leverages Rosetta Stone as part of their credit recovery program for Spanish, French and English. This enables at risk students to work through the Rosetta Stone program to augment or supplement the classroom instruction, giving the student an opportunity for recovery of credits in their target language. As a close neighbor to the second-largest military base in the U.S., Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) grants and the Military Interstate Children’s Compact Mission help support the district’s commitment to enhance learning opportunities for students of military families. The most common languages studied include Spanish, French, Latin and English. Through Rosetta Stone, CMCSS has expanded its language offering to feature several new languages, including Arabic, Korean and Chinese, which are frequently used by students to finish credits begun overseas. English-language learners are able to complement their traditional language instruction with certified English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers. Students of all languages are taking advantage of the supplementary materials provided by Rosetta Stone. Additionally, CMCSS now offers Rosetta Stone to adult learners through its GED program, allowing adults to rapidly develop English skills. “CMCSS is diligently working to prepare a uniquely diverse community and student body to contribute to an increasingly connected world,” said Matt Hall, Vice President, Enterprise & Education, Rosetta Stone. “We are pleased to be able to support CMCSS in preparing our nation’s students to navigate a global economy.” About Clarksville-Montgomery County School System CMCSS is located in Clarksville, TN between Fort Campbell, Kentucky and Nashville. There are 39 schools in the district: one K-5 Magnet School, 23 elementary schools, 7 middle schools, 7 high schools, and one Middle College, which is located on the campus of Austin Peay State University. CMCSS also offers seven specialized, interest-driven college and career preparatory schools within their high schools. With a graduation rate of 96.5% in 2015, the school system exceeds both state and national averages and receives strong community support for education, with an emphasis on 100% graduation for every student. In May 2015, 1,997 CMCSS graduates earned $37 million in college scholarships. About Rosetta Stone Rosetta Stone Inc.
