Director of Schools Search

In September 2015, the Metro Nashville Public Schools Board of Education began discussing the best way to “reboot” the search process for a new director of schools. Realizing the importance of bringing others into the search process more intentionally, they proactively reached out to newly elected Mayor Megan Barry and the Nashville Public Education Foundation to form the community Search Advisory Committee to help kick-start the search process. This group of 17 community leaders released a 192-page report with recommendations and a leadership profile, which was unanimously approved by the school board.
