PHOTOS: Metro Schools opens new enrollment center at the Global Mall
Metro Schools opened a new enrollment center at the Global Mall in Antioch on Friday, June 10.
Enrollment centers opened in each of our zoned high schools a few years ago as a way for the district to centralize enrollment services. Families can register at these locations Monday through Friday, year round – even when schools are out on spring, summer, fall and winter breaks.
"This new enrollment center here at the Global Mall is larger and easier to access for families in the Cane Ridge and Antioch clusters. But most importantly, it will be our first location outside of the district office that will offer English Learner (EL) registration services," said Chris Henson, interim director of schools. "As the fastest growing segment of our student population, we are taking a number of steps in this upcoming year to improve how we service EL students and their families."
With so many of our English Learner families living within the Cane Ridge and Antioch clusters, the new enrollment center will provide better service by bringing school registration closer to them, the district said.
"Having bilingual registrars and EL assessors from the Office of English Learners readily available at the Global Mall ensures easy, one-stop access for all of our families. This is a model site we hope to replicate in other parts of Nashville for the highest level of service possible for our families with non-English speaking backgrounds," said Kevin Stacy, director of the Office of English Learners.
While it's still early in summer, Metro Schools encourages families to take advantage of the new enrollment center at the Global Mall and other locations throughout Davidson County.
"The last two weeks of July – just before school starts back – is the busiest time of the year for our enrollment staff. We encourage families to come while the lines are short or non-existent. You’ll be glad that you did!" Henson said.
