  • School Status Update

    Good morning parents of Lake Taylor Middle School students. Lake Taylor Middle School and Norfolk Public Schools are aware of a disturbing social media post circulating about Lake Taylor Middle School. We take any threat such as this seriously and are working closely with Norfolk PD as this matter is investigated.

     Parents are encouraged to speak to their children about the very serious nature of making threats as students found to have done this will be subject to appropriate disciplinary and legal actions.

    Student safety is our primary concern and as such Lake Taylor Middle School is working closely with our school resource officer and Norfolk Police to investigate this incident.

  • 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.
