BOXES SENT TO EVERY SCHOOL TO DISCUSS PROJECT RESET

The Nashville Public Education Foundation has sent a gift to every school in the district to help jump-start the next meeting within the building.

The box is part of the foundation's Project RESET initiative that hopes to set community goals for education in the city. The hope is teachers and parents will use the box to discuss the needs of their community and the city, according to the foundation.

Each box comes with three cards that ask what the individual school needs, what participants would like the new director of the district to focus on and a rundown of the areas of focus identified in the Project RESET report.

 

The report, compiled by The Parthenon Group, looks at the state of education in Nashville compared to other cities and lists goals for the district. Those goals include attracting more high-quality teachers to the district, giving principals more authority in their schools and continuing the district's pre-kindergarten initiative.

Once parents and teachers fill out the cards, the education foundation is asking them to be mailed back. Postage has been provided, according to a spokeswoman for the foundation.
