Focused Outcomes

Signature Initiatives: Every Student Known

Every Student Known

Metro Nashville Public Schools believes every student should have a clear and achievable path to success marked by measurable goals.

Students and their families should know that if they meet objective academic and attendance goals while making appropriate progress in developing social-emotional skills such as self-management and decision-making at each stage of their K-12 career, they will consistently advance, grow and ultimately graduate. These goals are known as Focused Outcomes.

“Students who see the pathway to graduation will be able to get there as long as they work hard and have the support that MNPS is committed to providing,” Director of Schools Dr. Adrienne Battle said.

We have created Focused Outcomes for grades Pre-K-4, 5, 6-8, 9-10 and 11-12 that families can download to understand the goals for your students.

Focused outcomes include the areas of literacy, numeracy, attendance, social-emotional learning, transition preparation, and graduation.

The Focused Outcomes will be tied to the Personalized Student Dashboard, which is under development so that parents and students can go online and see if they are on track to meet their individual goals for the year.

The Personalized Student Dashboard is one of many Signature Initiatives for Metro Schools that are being developed or already working to ensure teachers, staff, students, and parents have the support they need to achieve the desired outcomes.

There are 14 signature initiatives that will serve to guide the work of the district:

All of our focused outcomes and signature initiatives will align with four Core Tenets that will center the work of the central office and district:

  • Re-envision central office as a support hub.
  • Empower and equip leaders at all levels. 
  • Create and support engaging, rigorous, and personalized learning experiences for all students. 
  • Identify and eliminate inequities

These core tenets guide Metro Nashville Public Schools towards our North Star which is to establish MNPS as the premier large school district in Tennessee and beyond.
