No Child Left Behind meeting for parents scheduled tomorrow
Parents can attend an informational meeting on No Child Left Behind this Tuesday, Aug. 19, from 6:30-8 p.m. The Metro Nashville Public Schools Federal Programs Office will host the meeting in the board room at the Central Administration Building, 2601 Bransford Ave. Through NCLB, students zoned for schools listed as High Priority have the option to attend a different school in the district. The law requires these schools offer Supplemental Educational Services, such as tutoring programs, for all students. Parents will learn what Choice is, the stipulations and regulations surrounding Choice, where students attending High Priority schools are eligible to transfer and transportation options surrounding Choice. The forum will provide information on how schools become targeted as High Priority, and parents will receive a tutoring request packet and information on how to choose the best tutoring service. All state approved tutoring services have also been invited to attend. Parents unable to attend the meeting can contact the SES Coordinator at their child’s school for more information.
