Save Our Students
Dear Parent and Community Stakeholder:
The Tennessee Department of Education has elected to withhold approximately $3.4 million from Metro Nashville Public schools because our elected schoolboard denied the approval of the charter for Great Hearts. As a result, this funding will be allocated to other school districts.
The lack of these funds directly impacts ALL students. Our school district can not weather such an financial impact. This funding extends beyond administrative purposes only, and is utilized for utilities, student transportation, maintenance of schools, including restrooms and classrooms. The true victims will be our children.
Please stand with us to tell the Tennessee Commissioner of Education that our 81,000 students and families should not be penalized. Stand with us to tell the Tennessee Department of Education to restore our funding. Restoring our Funding is Saving Our Students.
