Meet

Dr. Joseph is committed to an open dialogue with the Nashville community and has a sincere interest in hearing what its citizens have to say. He will spend his first 100 days talking with parents, students, teachers, neighbors, civic and business leaders and more so that he can learn more about the district and its needs and also to collect input to use in a new strategic planning process.

Listen & LearnListen&Learn_SMGraphic

Throughout July and early August, Dr. Joseph and the Board of Education are hosting 11 public meetings called “Listen and Learn” sessions. Each meeting will include an hour-long question and answer meeting with Dr. Joseph and area Board members, as well as interactive deep dives into specific questions and important topics.

Meetings will serve all of the district’s geographic clusters and each Board district, bringing a two-way conversation to every part of Nashville. The meetings are open to the public, although parents, students, staff and school community partners are especially encouraged to attend.

The information from these Listen and Learn sessions will be compiled into a report to be shared with Dr. Joseph and the public. It will be weighed heavily in Dr. Joseph’s strategic planning process during and after his first 100 days in the district.
