Nashville Public Schools
At Nashville Apartments, we understand the importance of education in today's
society. Parents want nothing more than to place their children in schools where
they know their children will be in good hands. Especially when moving to a new
area, parents want to make sure that there are appropriate schools nearby.
Researching specific needs and wants for their children's education is the first
step that any moving parent should take. A simple phone call to the school's
district will answer most of your questions, but not all. Some cases may require
a visit to a counselor who is more than willing to help a parent find the right
education and school for their kids. The internet is also a very useful source
for information regarding ANYTHING related to your child's education. Here is a
link to the Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools website.

The Tennessee State Board of Education recognizes that a child's education
is a responsibility shared by the school and family during the entire period
the child spends in school. To support the state board goal to educate all
students to achieve world-class standards and leave school prepared for
postsecondary education, work, and citizenship schools and parents must work
as knowledgeable partners.
Although parents are diverse in culture, language, and needs, they share the
school's commitment to the educational success of their children.
Collaboration between schools and parents is essential to support student
learning. Programs must reflect the specific needs of the students and the
families in the community they serve. To this end, this policy supports the
development, implementation, and regular evaluation of a parent involvement
program in each school. It obligates the involvement of parents at all grade
levels in a variety of roles. Parent involvement programs should be
comprehensive and coordinated in nature.
Consistent with the standards set forth in the No Child Left Behind Act and
the National PTA Standards for Parent/Family Involvement Programs, a
successful parent involvement program will include, but not be limited to,
the following components:
- Communication between home and school is regular, two-way, and meaningful;
- Responsible parenting is promoted and supported;
- Parents play an integral role in assisting student learning;
- Parents are welcome in the school, and their support and assistance are
- Parents are full partners in the decisions that affect children and
- Community resources are made available to strengthen school programs,
family practices, and student learning.
The Board supports professional development opportunities, consistent with
the Board's Professional Development Policy, for educators and parents to
better understand, develop and implement practices that involve
parent/families in a meaningful way in the education of their children. The
Board also recognizes the importance of administrative leadership in setting
expectations and creating a climate conducive to parental participation. In
addition to programs at the school level, the State Board of Education
supports the development, implementation, and regular evaluation of a
program to involve parents in the decisions and practices of each school
district, using to the degree possible, the components listed above.
Engaging parents is essential to improved student achievement. This board
shall foster and support active parent involvement.
