Answers
1)  Q How do I enroll my child at CDMS?
A
Please click on the New Student Enrollment tab on the left side of this page.
2)  Q How do I withdraw my child from CDMS?
A
Your child needs to complete a withdrawal form from Student Services on their last day of attendance. He/she will go to all of their teachers, the cafeteria and the media center. All books must be turned in and overdue accounts paid before official withdrawal is complete.
3)  Q How do I set up a conference with my child's teachers?
A
Please contact your child's teachers to set up a conference. If you would like for a counselor to attend, please call and notify us and we would be happy to attend the conference. You may contact your teacher by linking to their email address from their team web page or by calling 357-2310 and leaving a message on their voice mail. Please note that teachers do not receive telephone calls during the instructional day.
4)  Q How does my child qualify for accelerated classes?
A
A student can qualify for accelerated classes in language arts and/or math. Qualifying criteria consists of scoring 68% or higher on the reading and/or math EOG and a 90 average or higher in language arts and/or math class from the previous year.
For example, to qualify in 6th grade we evaluate their 5th grade EOG scores and yearly final grades.
Once a child is in an accelerated class, he/she must maintain an 85 average and make at least 68% on the EOG to continue in the accelerated program.
5)  Q What is the qualifing criteria for AIG identification?
A
The majority of AIG students are identified in the 3rd grade. If you feel your child may qualify for AIG, please contact us so we may help you look at the qualifying information. There are multiple options for entry into the program and it would be difficult to explain them all here.
6)  Q How do I home school my child?
A

For a child between seven (7) and sixteen (16) years of age to be legally transferred to a home school, the public school must receive a copy of the acknowledgment to open a home school from the Division of Non-Public Education provided to the home school parent applicant. Without this notice being presented to the public school, a student will be classified as illegally absent from school in violation of G.S. 115C-378 and shall be reported to the authorities as truant. Home School Information and Application to Operate a Home School can be found at www.ncdnpe.org/ or by phone the NC Division of Non-Public Education at (919) 733-4276
