Parent Resources

The Parent Resources section was created by the Tennessee School Boards Association (TSBA) as a public education resource for a variety of audiences across the state of Tennessee. This section serves as the one-stop source to unburden parents and school districts from a lengthy search for the information they need.

For Parents

Whether your child is just beginning his or her first school experience; transferring from another state or country; transitioning from private school or home school; or you simply wish to be more informed about the Tennessee school your child already attends, this site will provide you with the resources to better understand Tennessee’s public school system.

Parents shouldn’t have to spend hours searching for answers to questions they have about public schools. Information should be easy to find. We’ve collected a number of resources and need-to-know information to help your child succeed in public school.

For Districts

TSBA designed this resource to provide districts with a tool to help parents get acquainted with the Tennessee public school system. Though many of the specific questions parents have can best be answered by contacting the individual school, this site presents general information about how to enroll, understand the school system, and get involved with their child’s education. The site aims to create a comfortable experience for those entering the Tennessee public school system by providing quick access links and various insights on how best to be prepared.

TSBA encourages school districts and state organizations to distribute this information freely.
