Our 5 year goal is to create a network of thousands of engaged and empowered parents to drive change.

Project Renaissance will work with Nashville parents to ensure policymakers and school system officials create great schools for all children, regardless of background.

Empowered Parents

We’ll create a strong community through Nashville Rise — a coalition of parents who want more great schools for our city’s children.

Strong Relationships

By connecting parents, educators, community leaders and elected officials, we will help to ensure that we are all focused on the needs of Nashville’s students.

Supportive Conditions

We’ll advance policies that create the conditions for great schools to grow and thrive. Among the issues we hope to address are transportation options, funding challenges for special populations (Special Education, English language learners) and universal enrollment.
