NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Nashville’s school chief says underperforming schools in the north end of the city will remain open because there aren’t enough facilities for students if any of them shut down.

WPLN-FM in Nashville (https://bit.ly/1tpnFrV ) reported that District Superintendent Jesse Register spelled out the plans Thursday night at a meeting with parents.

Register says the challenge is to make sure the schools have the support needed to become successful.

Register is recommending increased spending on teacher training and tutoring. He also wants to hire a consultant for roughly $75,000 to help strategize. He says he does not think Churchwell Elementary would be a good fit for a charter conversion.

Churchwell has had four principals in the last four years and nearly 1,200 discipline incidents last year.
