Board of Education

The Metropolitan Nashville Board of Public Education

Due to social distancing measures, seating at board meetings is limited. We encourage those interested in viewing the meeting to watch on the Metro 3 channel. Those who have signed up to speak during the public participation portion of the meeting should be prepared to leave after their comments, as seating space is not available.

The school board represents the public's voice in public education, providing oversight for what the public schools need and what the community wants. An effective school board has an important role in keeping your local school on track and setting policies that affect your child and your school.

Regular meetings of the Board of Public Education are held at the Central Administration Building of Metro Nashville Public Schools, 2601 Bransford Avenue, at 5 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month. 

These meetings are open to the public and are televised on Metro Nashville Network, a local cable community access channel.

 

Public Participation

Members of the public are invited to speak to the Board during the meeting on the second Tuesday of each month. All speakers are limited to three minutes; however, the length of time may change at the chair's discretion.
