Eleven school districts from around the nation are bringing teams of educators and city leaders to Nashville Nov. 17 – 19, to study Metro Nashville Public School’s extensive high school reform effort. Teams consist of mayors, school superintendents, college presidents, Chamber and economic development executives, business leaders, and school administrators.
The Education Executive Leadership Study Trip is a two-day meeting being hosted by Alignment Nashville, the facilitator for Nashville’s Ford Motor Company Fund Professional Development Hub and MNPS. The visit is the first of this magnitude since Nashville’s designation as a Leadership Level Next Generation Learning Community by the Ford Motor Company Fund. Nashville was named a NGLC in the summer of 2010 due to the extensive reforms taking place in our high schools.
Mayor Karl Dean and Director of Schools Jesse register will welcome the group tonight and meet with other mayors and school superintendents Thursday and Friday. The group will be in work sessions at Belmont University for much of Thursday and tour The Academies of Nashville in action Friday, at 9:30 a.m., at Glencliff High School.
