Engaging the Community, Growing With Quality: Six New Schools Join ASD

By Elliot Smalley

Have you heard the big news?  Today, after months of engagement and listening, we announced the list of six new schools joining the ASD in 2014-15!  We couldn’t be more excited about what this means for the students and families of Memphis.  Here’s the list:

This is an absolutely amazing group of local and national organizations, now matched with neighborhood schools where the students have unlimited potential, and the families deserve nothing but the best.  The ASD has gone from 5 schools in Memphis to 22 in only three years—with each and every ASD school believing in the potential of every student, and committing to move their schools from the bottom 5% to the top 25% in five years.  We thank our new schools for doing whatever it takes for kids, and to our new school communities, we thank you for the privilege of serving your children and working side-by-side with you.
