Metro Schools Director Dr. Shawn Joseph just completed his first 100 days in office. On Tuesday he presented his report to the Board of Education.

The report focuses on five key areas of action and analysis and was conducted over the last 100 days by Dr. Joseph and a 47 member transition team.

Those areas include district governance; a central office that can support the workload to come, student achievement, public and community relations and finally the district's operations and finances.
Everything that was found in those key areas will be used to build a new strategic plan for the district.

The report is a part of an ongoing review that includes more than 70 school visits, a dozen community forums, parent teacher sessions and meetings with district principals. 

Here are some of the conclusions Dr. Joseph made at the end of his 100 days.
When it comes to curriculum; make sure teachers are teaching to the standards and strengthen the coherence of instructional, curricular and school programs, ensure the district's non-magnet schools are offering rigor to all students and provide fair and effective discipline practices.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Nashville Education Association said Dr. Joseph is “about the best superintendent we could’ve asked for,” by bringing the community together. They went on to say Dr. Joseph’s “vision is promising but he’s had some hiccups along the way.”
