ASD Kicks Off New Community Input Process for 6 Memphis Priority Schools Eligible to Join District in 2016
Today the Achievement School District announced a list of six Memphis area Priority Schools eligible to join the ASD next school year. These six school communities will participate in the ASD’s new community input process to determine whether they will join the district in 2016.
Over the past two weeks, I, along with members of the ASD team, had the privilege of talking to communities about the Community Input Process. As guests at meetings held by Stand for Children-Tennessee, Memphis LIFT, and the Black Alliance for Educational Options (BAEO), we’ve had the opportunity to talk to students, parents, clergy, and other invested groups about their school choice options.
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.

Green Dot is honoring the Raleigh-Egypt community’s request to wait a year and is planning to strengthen its ties with the Memphis community while they focus on their other two schools in Memphis.
