Report to the Community
In Newport News Public Schools, every student is expected to graduate college, career, and citizen-ready. To accomplish this, we provide our students with daily experiences in smart, safe schools to prepare them for their roles as learners, employees, and contributing citizens in the 21st century.
Newport News Public Schools has made strides in enhancing academic performance, significantly raising achievement levels, increasing enrollment in rigorous coursework, moving students into higher-level math, expanding preschool access, and narrowing achievement gaps.
We also recognize that young people need more than academic achievement to become well-rounded, contributing adults. That’s why the Agenda for Public Education, our strategic plan, includes youth development as one of three goals for all students.
In addition to achievement and advancement, our youth development initiative is assisting students in growing their skills in leadership, citizenship, and teamwork.
Youth development is critically important in Newport News Public Schools. Our work engages students in clubs, organizations, and activities to increase the range of their experiences and their connection to school, and recognizes and supports youth leadership and mentoring.
Everywhere you look in Newport News Public Schools, you can find youth development in action. Included in this Report to the Community are just a few illustrations of how our students are learning to make a big difference in their lives, in their schools, and in their community.
