Updated January 8, 2013

As we begin the second half of our school year, the terrible tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, is still on our minds. It is difficult to comprehend what happened and we grieve the loss of the children, teachers and staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

We are committed to the safety of our children and staff and we have been working to create positive, safe schools for years. We are well ahead of many area districts. Any changes we make to our procedures now will be based on thoughtful, measured decisions that produce real improvements to school security.

We know parents are troubled by this event and may want to know more about school safeguards and security measures in our district.

The safety of our students and staff is our first priority. We are reviewing every piece of our security practices and plans and expediting security upgrades that we had previously planned. We have been in ongoing communication with local law enforcement and emergency management officials to insure our emergency management procedures are current and aligned with best practices. With our large district, we need a process to address the improvements and we are underway.

Toward that end, all principals, assistant principals and central office staff who work in schools were asked to complete a FEMA crisis management training program over the holidays as a refresher for good safety procedures. We have reviewed our safety procedures with local law enforcement and are in communication with the state. Our maintenance and security staffs are reviewing access and safety measures in every school, with help from school staff. We want to make sure procedures are consistent and in place and that safety devices are up to date. We remind visitors they must sign in and out and wear visitor IDs in district facilities.

Thank you for continuing to observe and follow all of the safety procedures currently in place.

Our middle and high schools have School Resource Officers who are sworn Metro Police Officers employed by the Metro Police Department. We believe any armed staff in our schools should be fully-trained uniformed police officers.

We are in a better position to keep our schools safe when we limit detailed discussion of our security measures to those who need to know the details. Consequently, if you have concerns about the specifics in your school, please talk to your principal, who can address your concerns or share them with our security and facilities staff as appropriate.

So that we can all help our children emotionally process this disturbing news and continue to feel safe at school and home, the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) has put together a number of suggestions and tips for families. The NASP website has even more, including tips translated into several languages.

From NASP:

It is important to keep in mind that an event like this is rare. Schools are one of the safest places for children and youth during the school day, and an important place for them to receive support and return to normalcy.

Communication and collaboration among schools, parents, and communities is critical to ensure that our students continue to view schools as safe, caring, and supportive environments. How adults react to this tragedy can shape the way children and youth react and their perceptions of safety.

Educators can reinforce students’ sense of safety by making classrooms predictable and welcoming, providing access to mental health supports as needed, and connecting families with other available resources after school hours.

Families are encouraged to spend time together, validate children’s feelings, ask for help as needed, and find calm and relaxing activities to do at home.

It is very important to limit children’s exposure to media coverage, particularly for young children. If children are watching the news or accessing information online, parents and caregivers should be available to talk to their children about it.

Families and educators will serve on the frontline of helping children understand and cope with this violence and loss of life. Most children and youth are resilient and will cope well with the support and caring of their families, teachers, friends, and other caring adults. However, young children may have particular difficulty understanding and describing their feelings and emotions.

Some tips to help children include:

  • Provide a developmentally appropriate, clear, and straightforward explanation of the event

  • Return to normalcy and routine to the best extent possible while maintaining flexibility

  • Let children know it’s okay to feel upset or angry

  • Be a good listener and observer

  • Provide various ways for children to express emotion, either through journaling, writing letters, talking, making a collage, or music

  • Focus on resiliency as well as the compassion of others

You may have heard about and executive order from President Obama that will stop deportations of young people under certain conditions.


This executive order means many people will need to access school documents demonstrating they have graduated from high school or are currently enrolled.

  • If you plan to apply for President Obama’s immigration Deferred Action program, please remember that as of now there is no established deadline to apply.

  • We are working hard and have brought in additional staff (3 full-time employees, plus 5 temps and others cycling in from other departments) to handle student record requests.

  • We have also brought in additional equipment to help review the micro film and print transcripts.

  • Even with these additional resources, please understand each request takes 30 to 90 minutes to process. Therefore, please allow 10 business days before each request is completed. With the unprecedented volume we are not able to respond to requests any faster.

  • Records from students who were in school within 3 years should go to their most recent school of record.

  • Thank you for your cooperation and patience as we are working very hard to fill all record requests within 10 business days.

You may have heard about and executive order from President Obama that will stop deportations of young people under certain conditions.

This executive order means many people will need to access school documents demonstrating they have graduated from high school or are currently enrolled.

How to Request Student & Graduate Records

If the student is currently enrolled or graduated within the last three years (in 2010, 2011 and 2012), the records are at the Metro Nashville high school from which the student graduated.

If the student graduated prior to 2010, the records must be retrieved. The student must complete a Records Request Form found at this link:
http://www.mnps.org/Page58540.aspx. The fee for this request is $3.

Who is eligible for deferred action under this new directive?

Pursuant to the Secretary’s June 15, 2012, memorandum, in order to be eligible for deferred action, individuals must:

  1. Have come to the United States under the age of sixteen;

  2. Have continuously resided in the United States for at least five years preceding the date of this memorandum and are present in the United States on the date of this memorandum;

  3. Currently be in school, have graduated from high school, have obtained a general education development certificate, or are honorably discharged veterans of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States;

  4. Have not been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor offense, multiple misdemeanor offenses, or otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety;

  5. Not be above the age of 30.

Individuals must also complete a background check and, for those individuals who make a request to USCIS and are not subject to a final order of removal, must be 15 years old or older.

What a day! The first day of school in 2012-13 was a whirlwind for parents, educators, and everyone in or near a Metro school.

We had new schools opening (Cane Ridge Elementary, The Cohn School, The Academy at Opry Mills), others in new locations, and thousands of students coming to our schools for the first time.

At the end of the day (or half-day, if you like), things moved pretty smoothly, with one teacher even describing it as "the smoothest, most positive I can recall."

We went all over the city taking photos at several schools. Parents also sent in pictures of their children heading to school. They're all collected below in a Flickr slideshow.

Elsewhere online, parents, teachers, and the community were all a-buzz about the first day, sharing their experiences with us as the morning went on. We've collected them all together in a Storify story that includes several more pictures. Read the story here.

Thanks to everyone who made Day One such a success. The start of school is always a big day, and thanks to our wonderful families and community for helping out!


Don't leave your school hanging! Update your contact info today!We say it often: it is very important for schools to have your correct address and phone number.

How important? This important:

When report cards were mailed home after school ended a few weeks back, nearly all of them arrived on time and at the right house. But more than 2,700 were sent back because of incorrect addresses.

How to Pick Up Your Report Card

Those families who have not yet received report cards can pick them up at their school. Parents must bring proof of residence with them so school staff can verify who you are and also correct your address in their records.

Any report cards not picked up by July 13 will be sent to Central Office (2601 Bransford Avenue).

Your school will soon be in contact with you about this.

Oh, and while we have your attention, why not
give your school a call to update your address and telephone number?


Working together, parents can do anything!

That's why we're bringing parents and experts together for another big Parent University Conference. We're offering free workshops and seminars meant to help all of our parents raise self-confident, disciplined, and motivated children. Parents will learn tips for helping their children learn in modern classrooms. There will also be plenty of information on healthy lifestyles and families.

It's happening Saturday, July 21, at McGavock High School. It's free and open to everyone, but you do have to register.

So don't delay. Sign up today!

Metro Schools will mail elementary students’ report cards to their home address this year. To ensure everyone receives a report card, it is very important for families who may have moved to check with their child’s school to make sure their home address is listed correctly.

The report cards are not available at schools today due to an unexpected problem with grade calculations by the grading software. Metro Schools’ Information Technology staff worked through the night with the Gradespeed software vendor to identify and resolve the problem. Those efforts will continue today.

Online grades available to parents do not appear to be affected.

While the district has used Gradespeed effectively for a number of years to generate report cards for middle and high school, this is the first time to use the product to generate elementary report cards.

The middle and high school report cards are not affected and will be mailed as usual.

Thursday, May 17th

6:00 p.m.


In just a few days, the sounds of Pomp and Circumstance will be heard throughout Davidson County as more than 4,000 Metro seniors receive their high school diplomas. Thousands more families, friends, neighbors, and guests of Metro Schools will join in the celebration of that accomplishment at graduation ceremonies.

We want everyone to enjoy graduation, which is why we’ve developed a Graduation Etiquette Pledge (GEP) made up of four easy steps to an honorable, dignified, and civil ceremony.

Guests of graduation pledge to:

  • leave air horns, whistles, fog horns and other noise makers at home;

  • allow seatmates to see the entire ceremony by not holding balloons, signs, or banners of any kind;

  • respect school and security staff present and follow requests made by them; and

  • wear appropriate clothing and behave in a manner befitting guests of Metro Schools.

Our guests also understand that school staff may ask disruptive a guest to leave.

Following our simple GEP, everyone can have a grand graduation and see his or her baby walk across that stage. Air horns and ten-foot signs can wait until the after party in your own backyard.

Thank you to all of our guests and congratulations to all of our graduates!

This school year hasn’t closed out yet, but the first day of next school year will be here before you know it! So where will your child be going to school on August 1st?

Enrollment confirmation letters are in the mail and headed to your house. They state very clearly which school your child will attend in 2012-13. Every student in Metro Schools will receive one.

Here’s the important part: if the letter is correct, you do not need to do anything. If the letter is not correct, you must correct it and return it to the Customer Service Center by May 22. You may do this by mail or in person.

I think that’s worth repeating.

If your child’s enrollment letter is correct, do nothing and enjoy the school year!

If your child’s enrollment letter is wrong, correct it and return it to the Customer Service Center by May 22. The corrected letter must be mailed or delivered in person. Faxes, phone calls, and emails will not be accepted.

The Customer Service Center is located at 2601 Bransford Avenue, 37204. It is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.

Now that that business is out of the way, I’ll take a moment to wish everyone a happy and successful end of the year!

And don't forget school starts August 1st!

If you missed last Thursday's big meeting on the future of East Nashville neighborhood schools, you can read a full recap, including the Q&A session with Dr. Register and Board Chair Gracie Porter.It was a packed house at Dan Mills Elementary, with Stand for Children hosting the event and giving parents the opportunity to ask questions directly to the people in charge about how their schools are changing. With three schools converting to STEM magnets, the opening of a new charter school and East Literature's continued conversion into a Paideia school, there was a lot of ground to cover. Special thanks to the folks at Stand for Children, particularly Francie Hunt, who put these notes together.
