        In 2006, the Metropolitan Nashville (TN) Public Schools (MNPS) began redesigning its zoned high schools around career clusters. The Academies of Nashville include three elements: a small learning community; a college preparatory curriculum with a career/thematic focus; and partnerships with employers, the community, and local colleges. The Academies fall within six career groupings: (1) Arts, Media, and Communications; (2) Business, Marketing, and Information Technology; (3) Engineering, Manufacturing, and Industrial Technology; (4) Health; (5) Hospitality and Tourism; and (6) Human and Public Services. In the Academy structure, students are more engaged in their studies, have a richer understanding of course material due to relevance and hands-on learning, and feel more prepared for life after high school. In this Webinar, participants will learn about the MNPS journey and challenges they addressed as they transformed their schools around career clusters. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions about the process, as they contemplate how they can implement career clusters in their high schools.
