Statement on Great Hearts Academy’s Charter School Application – August 16, 2012

The new Metro Nashville Public Schools Board of Education will have its first meeting, with the election of the Board’s Chair and Vice Chair, Tuesday, September 11. The Great Hearts application will be on the agenda for that meeting.

In addition, the district is working to schedule a time for the board to hear from Dr. Len Stephens, who is an expert in inclusive practices for schools that welcome all families. Dr. Stephens was a witness in the Spurlock v. Fox case and is preparing a comprehensive report to the Board to frame our future vision of diversity in the district.
