ASD to hold 2nd neighborhood fair 10/19

ASD to hold 2nd neighbor-hood fair.

 

ASDimage-200

Hanley Aspire Elementary School, located at 680 Hanley Street in Orange Mound, will be the venue on Saturday (Oct. 19) for the Achievement School District’s second annual Neighborhood Schools Fair.

The event will be from until 3 p.m., with ASD leadership promising an afternoon filled with opportunities to speak directly with charter operators. Also on the menu is “food, fun and activities for everyone, including free massages for teachers and cupcakes for kids.”

The Neighborhood Schools Fair will also be another chance for each community being considered in next year’s matching process to follow-up and ask questions after the school meetings held last month across the city.

 

“The Fair is a great opportunity for you to meet the ASD team, ask questions, and learn about the ASD’s schools and mission,” said Elliot Smalley, ASD’s Chief of Staff.

“The Achievement School District is not only dedicated to moving the bottom 5 percent of schools in Tennessee to the top 25 percent in five years, but we are also dedicated to continuing open dialogue with the community as a whole and keeping them engaged in every step of the matching process. This is just one way that we get a chance to do just that.”

Parents, teachers, and community members are asked to attend. Transportation will be provided, with pickups at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at these schools: Coleman Elementary, Springhill Elementary, Frayser High, South Side High, Carver High, Westwood Elementary, Fairley High and Wooddale Middle.

“Whether answering complicated questions about the difference between TVAAS and TCAP with concerned members of the Westwood community, or getting a call from a partner in Frayser to ask, ‘Will the Sherriff’s program still be at Frayser High next year when it’s a charter?,’ there are countless questions that are specific to the needs, concerns, and hopes of a school’s community,” said Margo Roen, director of New Schools for the ASD.

“We urge you, no we beg you, to come … ask the questions that are on your mind and keep the conversation going.”

For those whose schools are part of this year’s matching process, ASD is asking that they “come to provide input, get questions answered, and learn more about potential school matches.”

(For more information, including free transportation pick-ups, visit http://www.achievementschooldistrict.org or call 416-3119.)
