The ASD Mourns the Loss of Mitchell Saddler Sr.

It is with sadness that we mourn the loss of Mitchell Saddler Sr. Mitchell was a dedicated member of the ASD’s Achievement Advisory Council (AAC), where he served as a community and quality schools advocate for the last two years.



From School Matching to Community Input

We worked with parents and stakeholders to create the new school conversion process, one that is designed to elevate the voice of parents in helping operators shape a model that will best serve a school community.



Happy Independence Day from the ASD!

Independence Day is an opportunity to affirm those famous words written in our Declaration of Independence: “All men are created equal.”


Upcoming Events

  • August 5 First Day of School (Nashville campuses)
