Program areas at Nashville Public Education Foundation

During the year ended june 30, 2022, the Foundation released a shortened version of our documentary, by design: the shaping of Nashville's Public schools, that focuses on the desegregation era as well as a brief that digs into the policies from the film to encourage more conversations about the policies and decisions in our city's history that have established, exacerbated and continue to perpetuate inequities for students. We also faciliatated two critical partnerships for the district - the better together collaboration between mnps and Nashville state community college and the partnership for educational equity research between vanderbilt university and mnps. We advanced district initiatives through our tech goes home program, which provides technology training and free laptops and hotspots to mnps families to help address the digital divide, music makes us, which supports private lessons and instrument repairs for mnps's music program, and supports for principal supervisors to build their capacity to support their principals. Npef believes the teachers and leaders in the school can change the trajectory of a student's life, so we provide innovative professional learning for our teachers. New this year was science of learning, an interactive mini-series for mnps middle school teachers, and teacherpreneur, an experience for educators to develop their big ideas into pilot programs that could make a significant impact for students, families, and schools in our district. Participants pitched their plans for a chance to win $25,000 and seed funding to pilot their ideas. We also continue to raise awareness about critical issues facing our Public school students, including funding for Education and the role of the community in creating a city that prioritizes children and youth. Npef has fostered data-driven solutions that have led to tangible results in professional learning for teachers, teacher pay, principal quality, college access and success in our 20 years as an organization.
