“The Norfolk Public Schools Transformation Initiative will help us reimagine public education in Norfolk. The initiative is an important step toward NPS’ mission to become the cornerstone of our proudly diverse community.”

– Dr. Samuel T. King, Superintendent

What is the NPS Transformation Initiative ?

The Norfolk Public Schools Transformation Initiative is one of the initiatives designed to advance the NPS five-year Strategic Plan, which was adopted by the School Board in July 2013. On March 19, 2014, The School Board approved the Transformation Initiative as a component of the Strategic Plan. The primary focus for Norfolk Public Schools is to improve student achievement by transforming school culture. The Transformation Initiative moves the Strategic Plan forward by transforming multiple schools across the division. However, Norfolk Public Schools embraces the courage to advocate for the needs of ALL students, and embraces the urgent need to invest in our communities and families with strong leadership teams, shared responsibility, personalized learning and access to rich and rewarding experiences across the school division.
