Handbooks & Forms

Saving money, saving the environment.

Again this year, all CMS required forms and the Parent-Student Handbook will only be available online. The move to online forms will save the district printing, processing and shipping costs. It also aligns with CMS' efforts to conserve resources and limit paper use.
