Stratford STEM Magnet High School Michael Steele Stratford High School opened in The school's facilities sit on 30 acres, which include a baseball field, football field with practice area, and ample parking. The school is a recipient of Race to the Top (RTTT) funds and Magnet School funds. These sources of funding have been used to improve classrooms, provide professional development, and develop the school into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) themed academies: The Academy of Science and Engineering, The Academy of National Safety and Security Technologies, and the Freshman Academy. Pathways include engineering, interdisciplinary science research, and more. Further renovations include the expansion of the thriving criminal justice pathway and creating pathways for teaching bio-technology and computer gaming and simulation. The Martha O'Bryan Center opened the "Top Floor" in October of 2010, providing after-school tutoring and ACT preparation for students at Stratford. They are housed within the school building, utilizing a second floor mezzanine area. There is a lounge area, enrichment, tutoring, college help, and a computer lab. They offer work-ready programs where they build relationships with employers and national career advancement centers.

Bass Learning Center Henry Johnson Bass Learning Center is a combination of three separate yet innovative programs. The Bass Alternative Learning High School is a unique environment where students who have been removed from a regular school setting receive academic and social mentoring and instruction. The goal of Bass ALC staff is to prepare students to achieve academically and learn to make better choices. Also housed in the Bass Learning Center is the Transition School. The Transition School began two years ago with Mr. Johnson as the Coordinator. Transition School provides individual mentoring, service learning, social counseling and academic instruction for students who are returning to the MNPS school setting from the Juvenile Justice System or

3 DCS Custody. Students are admitted to the school through an application process. Finally, Bass Learning Center is also home to the only MNPS Adult High School. Formerly Cohn High School, Bass Adult High School offers adults a second chance to obtain a regular high school diploma. Bass Adult High School is truly an asset to the Nashville community and Davidson County. The most important features of our program are individualized planning for each student s personal needs, team planning for the utilization of innovative interventions, and a compassionate staff with expertise in working with at risk populations. Our session will consist of a brief synopsis of our school presented by Mr. Henry Johnson. Mr. Johnson will be available for questions and additional discussions of interest. Tour # 3 International Schools Title of tour: Glenview Elementary School Claudia Russell Glimpse of the New America This is one of the largest ELL centers in the state of Tennessee, we also have the largest population of students from Egypt at the elementary level. We currently have over 300 students that are Arabic speakers in addition to the large Spanish population of students. We have the only approved Boys and Girls club site in MNPS, we have two after school programs which are federally funded; LEAP and GoldStar. We have two computer labs available for student use. Glenview Elementary School has approximately 780 students. There are 14 different languages spoken by faculty and students of the school. English as a second language has been the process for more than 80% of students enrolled in Glenview for the last 4 years. All students live within a mile and half of the school. The school has a garden and is a relative new facility of 6 years with 13 new rooms added just last school year. Glencliff High School Clint Wilson Pathways to Success Glencliff High School is one of the most diverse schools in the state of Tennessee. There are over 42 different nationalities and 26 languages represented in our student population. That diversity makes Glencliff a very unique and exciting community to teach and learn. We view our diversity as a strength that allows us to provide an educational setting that truly addresses a global society. The administration and staff of Glencliff embrace the changing demographics of our community and set high expectations for student performance and behavior. At Glencliff, we recognize that students are driven by a technological society; therefore, technology is integrated into the educational experience in both instructional and/or research settings.

4 In 1989, Glencliff was recognized as a National School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education. In 2011 GHS was the recipient of the National Community Schools Award for Excellence by the Coalition for Community Schools. Glencliff s focus on achieving results for all students, our wonderful partnerships, and our focus on engaging families and the community are a testament to the strong foundation and dedication that Glencliff has built around the community school curriculum. Glencliff is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools with commendations for the programs and services provided. Several unique features that set GHS apart from other schools include the following: an on-site health clinic open for students, teachers, and the community; an outdoor classroom; and a community garden club. Further, Glencliff students are encouraged to serve as leaders in our school and to participate in activities that extend the scope of their education. Glencliff students currently participate in the Mayor s Youth Council, International Teen Outreach Program, Future Business Leaders of America, Youth In Government, Community Nashville, Hands-on-Nashville, United Nations, AVID and a host of other clubs and organizations. In the fall of 2008, Glencliff High School implemented Career Academies as a part of MNPS s high school redesign program. Students have the opportunity to receive training and instruction in the areas of: Health Sciences, Human Services, Hospitality and Marketing, Business Management and Administration and Environmental and Urban Planning. The Career Academy curriculum provides students the opportunity to work with professionals in their respective fields while allowing students to develop the skills necessary for them to enter the work force or attend college to pursue post-secondary training and education. We are proud to say that Glencliff offers the only ACF certified culinary arts program in the state of Tennessee. Additionally, Glencliff also houses a district award winning Freshman Academy with an advisory program to provide more support and assistance to freshman students. This additional support increases the likelihood of academic success for first time ninth graders. Wright Middle School Jud Haynie Professional Learning Communities at Work Wright Middle was in the lowest tier of middle schools in the state of Tennessee four years ago. Terms like high priority, restructuring/reconstituting, failing school, state take-over, charter location were common place. And then something happened. Professional Learning Communities were introduced to the faculty. Since that time, this middle school is off of all lists that imply failure. It is in the top 3 middle schools for improved math scores. When you ask teachers, students and parents, the most common response is teachers taking time to build relationships and PLC s. During this tour participants will visit grade level PLC s at work. You will see content-specific planning

5 and communication that has transformed the Wright learning community into one of improved student achievement and school pride. Participants will observe collaborative planning and sharing of best practices in the classroom. Participants will observe a highly effective academic coaching model that is the foundation of Wright s improved status. Professional Learning Communities can transform a struggling faculty to one that provides students the opportunity to take ownership of their learning. At Wright Middle such a transformation has occurred. A school that was recently target for state takeover is now one of the top performing middle schools in MNPS. Come observe professional learning communities in action. Tour # 4 Elementary Schools J.E. Moss Elementary School Dr. Carlos Comer Addressing Student Diversity through the PLC Framework At JE Moss Elementary School, our vision is to maximize the potential of every student. We are one of the largest, ethnically diverse elementary schools in our district serving more than 15 different nationalities. In an effort to better serve our students, we have embraced the Professional Learning Community Framework which serves as our guide for making decisions regarding teaching and learning. One very unique feature of our school is our learning pods which are based on the school within a school concept model. Our learning pods provide a framework which we use to raise the affective filter of our students and address their varied learning needs through differentiation. Key program features 7 highlights: Professional Learning Communities Learning Pods Effective use of Instructional Coaching Data Driven Instructional Decision Making Effective use of Common Assessments JE Moss Elementary School employs the Professional Learning Community Framework to address challenges that are unique to many urban schools with large populations of English Learners. Visitors will be able to observe practical PLC strategies that are used to support student learning. Chadwell Elementary Renita Perkins Chadwell Elementary, School of Excellence Chadwell Elementary has made great strides in the past three years. The school has gone from the status of School Improvement II in to good standing in In 2012 our test scores in reading increased by 22.5 % and by 12.5% in math. Out of 113 schools Chadwell Elementary went from 54 in 2011 #31 in We

6 contribute these gains to a lot hard work, collaboration, professional development, new programs implemented with fidelity and a shift in school culture. School wide emphasis on higher level thinking questioning and response. School wide continuous focus on particular skills utilizing the calendar. (All hands on deck Focused Calendar) Every child, everyday working on mastery. Implementation with fidelity, a comprehension program called HeadSprout, which guarantees to yield great gains. Data meetings once a month for all grade levels. Data days for the 3 rd and 4 th grade teachers to strictly study their data and plan accordingly. Persistent and ongoing data checks and follow-up with a plan of action. Data chats between the students and the teachers. A road map for achievement is created by the teachers. The teacher s conference with each student to help them understand where they are, where they need to be and what efforts are required to get them there. Implementation of the Leaps Program. Chadwell received a grant that allows Chadwell s teachers to provide additional instruction, homework assistance and enrichment to academically struggling students in the third and fourth grade before and after school, Monday through Thursday. Through this journey of academic excellence, we have learned that the quality of teaching is the direct result of the quantity of the students that become proficient or advanced. Jones Elementary Paideia Magnet Dr. Debra Smith Jones Paideia Magnet School is one of the two Paideia schools in the elementary tier. We believe all children s voice matters. We practice rigorous dialogue and critical thinking. Three types of teaching occur in our school: didactic teaching of subject matter, coaching that produces the skills of learning, and Socratic questioning in seminar discussion. Our mission is to address the needs of the whole child in a nurturing environment that develops intelligence, creativity, and productive citizenship. During this session, teachers will focus on Socratic questioning in a Seminar discussion. Paideia Seminar is a collaborative, intellectual dialogue facilitated by open-ended questions about text. It nurtures both intellectual and social skills.

Students will graduate with the academic and social skills expected to become competitive members in our global society. The 9th grade academy is a smaller learning community in which first-time 9th graders are separated from the rest of the school and taught by teams of teachers. The 9th Grade Academy is focused on helping students make a smoother and more positive transition to high school. In addition to a rigorous academic core of courses (including Honors and Advanced Placement courses for students in all Career Academies), each student will follow a career focus of interest during his/her years of high school.
