Metro Schools now an “Advancing” School District

I am very proud to share that Metro Schools has announced that student academic achievement is improving, and the district is now an “Advancing” school district, which is the second highest rating a school system can achieve.  That’s largely based on TCAP scores and then schools are broken down into three categories – Reward, Priority or Targeted Support.  There are many more schools in the Reward category this year.

Music Makes Us Advisory Council Chair Hand Over

I recently completed my two-year term as Chair of the Advisory Council for Music Makes Us that serves to support the 44,000 students and 188 music teachers across MNPS.  I handed it over to Brian Sexton, whom is a wonderful community leader within arts and music, and he will be an excellent leader as we emerge from the pandemic and focus on rebuilding some programs and bringing further investment to support our teachers and students.

One such effort to support our student’s performance opportunities is the “Metro Marching Classic” where marching bands across Davidson County participate in an exhibition of their marching shows this year.  It’s a free event and all are welcome to attend on October 1st.  See flyer below for details.
