Metro Nashville schools start student help program


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Metro Nashville public schools have launched a program to get help to students who are hungry or need school supplies or clothing.

According to The Tennessean ( ), the Community Achieves initiative announced Thursday gives school employees a clear way to make requests for helping students.

Seventeen Metro schools have volunteered to take part, allowing their buildings to be used by various social services agencies to meet student needs.

Middle school principal Rise Pope says she has taught for 30 years and has never seen a situation where a child's need did not extend beyond the classroom.
