The Listen and Learn sessions have been very popular, with hundreds of people at every event – more than 2,000 so far. The demand is still high to meet new Director of Schools Dr. Shawn Joseph and give him thoughts and opinions on the district.

Though every session so far has been open to all families who want to attend, locations were chosen to meet parents by cluster, hitting every geographic area of Nashville.

August 17, 2016 - Choice School Parents and Community Members

There is additional demand from parents who are not bound by cluster, those who use the choice process to send their children to schools all over the district. Dr. Joseph and the Board of Education will host an additional Listen & Learn session for choice school families and community members. All are welcome to attend and share their ideas on the future of Metro Schools.
