At Nashville Apartments, we understand the importance of education in today's society. Parents want nothing more than to place their children in schools where they know their children will be in good hands. Especially when moving to a new area, parents want to make sure that there are appropriate schools nearby. Researching specific needs and wants for their children's education is the first step that any moving parent should take. A simple phone call to the school's district will answer most of your questions, but not all. Some cases may require a visit to a counselor who is more than willing to help a parent find the right education and school for their kids. The internet is also a very useful source for information regarding ANYTHING related to your child's education. Here is a link to the Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools website.

State Board of Education Parent/Family Involvement
The Tennessee State Board of Education recognizes that a child's education is a responsibility shared by the school and family during the entire period the child spends in school. To support the state board goal to educate all students to achieve world-class standards and leave school prepared for postsecondary education, work, and citizenship schools and parents must work as knowledgeable partners.

Although parents are diverse in culture, language, and needs, they share the school's commitment to the educational success of their children. Collaboration between schools and parents is essential to support student learning. Programs must reflect the specific needs of the students and the families in the community they serve. To this end, this policy supports the development, implementation, and regular evaluation of a parent involvement program in each school. It obligates the involvement of parents at all grade levels in a variety of roles. Parent involvement programs should be comprehensive and coordinated in nature.

Consistent with the standards set forth in the No Child Left Behind Act and the National PTA Standards for Parent/Family Involvement Programs, a successful parent involvement program will include, but not be limited to, the following components:
  • Communication between home and school is regular, two-way, and meaningful;
  • Responsible parenting is promoted and supported;
  • Parents play an integral role in assisting student learning;
  • Parents are welcome in the school, and their support and assistance are sought;
  • Parents are full partners in the decisions that affect children and families; and
  • Community resources are made available to strengthen school programs, family practices, and student learning.

The Board supports professional development opportunities, consistent with the Board's Professional Development Policy, for educators and parents to better understand, develop and implement practices that involve parent/families in a meaningful way in the education of their children. The Board also recognizes the importance of administrative leadership in setting expectations and creating a climate conducive to parental participation. In addition to programs at the school level, the State Board of Education supports the development, implementation, and regular evaluation of a program to involve parents in the decisions and practices of each school district, using to the degree possible, the components listed above.
Engaging parents is essential to improved student achievement. This board shall foster and support active parent involvement.
