Details of a comprehensive, long-term plan to attract and retain effective teachers in Metro Nashville Public Schools will be revealed this morning during a news conference and panel discussion.
Mayor Karl Dean and Director of Metro Schools Dr. Jesse Register will unveil ASSET (Achieving Student Success through Effective Teaching), the result of a yearlong study of teacher compensation and performance pay.
The new plan was developed with the help of education reform experts and dozens of Metro teachers and principals who served on various work teams and committees.
One of ASSET’s key components is recognizing that effective educators are not attracted, cultivated or retained based on compensation alone. ASSET also aims to address issues including professional development and leadership training for teachers and principals.
Following the announcement, a panel of local and national experts will discuss the details and impact of ASSET as part of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce Education 2020 and Mayor’s Speaker Series.
