NPS students return to school on Mon Jan 2nd 2023. The NPS Board decided to move the Jan 2nd New Years Day observation day off to March 13th because there is only one day off in March and it tends to be a “long” month for teachers. See enclosed NPS Academic Calendar

Here’s a sample of some amazing student artwork on display at the NPS Boardroom. Enjoy!

HELP! NPS STUDENTS ARE STUCK IN THE CLASSROOM! An impactful & memorable part of education is taking field trips. Unfortunately bus drivers are in short supply. Schools are seeking Commercially Licensed Drivers (CLD) for local field trips. Please email me at [email protected] if you would like to help provide opportunities for our students. You can also donate to your local school to help offset the costs of diesel & drivers.

“This race proved that each vote counts. I am grateful to have the best volunteers and supporters who worked diligently so I can continue to serve on the Norfolk School Board. As a proud parent of two NPS students, I believe there’s no work more important to the future of our community.”

With all ballots counted, the Virginia Department of Elections results showed 50.5% of the votes were cast in favor of Adale Martin, while 48.5% were for Carly West Gelles. Around 120 votes separated the two.

“My thoughts on this is that nonagenda items does not mean ‘not important,’” Martin said before the vote.

The Norfolk School Board's newly adopted special rules separates public comment during meetings into agenda and non-agenda periods, and the non-agenda period will take place off-camera.

School systems across Hampton Roads are all accredited. However, the number of schools accredited with conditions increased. Academic achievement in science remained a problem area for many schools in the region and the commonwealth.
