Alignment Nashville mobilizes strategic partners to challenge and address systemic barriers to impact MNPS students. To that end, we convene three types of Alignment Teams (A-Teams) structured around academic grade levels, special populations, and emerging needs:

Sustain Teams work to sustain successful collaborative initiatives, providing mechanisms for ongoing support and continuous improvement.

Academies of Nashville
Community Achieves
Music City SEL Conference
Summer Reading Partners
LEAF Community Nights

Change Teams address systemic barriers as outlined in the Systems Change Plans developed by Explore Teams. Change Teams follow a set process to plan collaboratively, align community resources, evaluate, and plan for sustainability

Behavioral Health
Dropout Prevention
Student Voice & Engagement
Youth Equity & Sexuality

Explore Teams identify systemic barriers or conditions that are holding a persistent problem in place and develop specific, actionable recommendations for addressing those conditions.
