  • Seeking Community Input: Norfolk Public Schools Corrective Action Plan/Reconstitution Agreement for School Improvement
    Recently, NPS  completed work with the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) on a new Corrective Action Plan/Reconstitution Agreement for School Improvement. This work  captures Norfolk’s targeted steps in district turnaround based on student achievement outcomes for the city’s schools that fall under the state sanction of “Accreditation Denied” or “Partially Accredited: Reconstituted”.   The plan may be found by clicking here.
    For comments or suggestions, please contact the principals of the specific schools identified in the plan.
