MNPS may lease Cohn school building to local charter school

As reported in today's City Paper, Metro Nashville Public Schools is considering leasing the Cohn school building to local charter school LEAD Academy, which plans to open a high school this fall.
An agreement for LEAD Academy’s new high school to lease space inside the Cohn school building in Sylvan Park appears to be gaining traction, but a deal still needs the OK of Metro Nashville Public Schools and subsequent school board approval...

Securing a facility for the high school, which begins its admissions process next week, has been the subject of recent conversations between LEAD Academy founder Jeremy Kane and Alan Coverstone, director of charter and private schools at MNPS. The two parties have discussed a handful of building possibilities, with the Cohn school building, situated at Park Avenue across the street from Richland Park, emerging as the clear preference for LEAD.
Neighbors are encouraged to review the full article to learn more about this possibility for the Cohn school property. Councilmember Jason Holleman (jason@jasonholleman.com) and Alan Coverstone at MNPS (alan.coverstone@mnps.org) would appreciate feedback from neighbors regarding this development.
