• Norfolk Public Schools (NPS) and the consulting firm, Cooperative Strategies have been working collaboratively to develop the school division’s long-range master facility plan to rebuild and renovate Norfolk’s aging schools and facilities. Currently there are 49 schools and student centers operating within the school division, with many averaging a lifespan over 50 years. As part of these efforts, Cooperative Strategies examined each of the schools’ building utilization as well as the current and projected enrollment and a school-by-school condition assessment completed by HBA Architecture. From this data and discussions with the school division's leadership team, Cooperative Strategies has developed a draft master facility plan for the City of Norfolk. A steering committee comprised of parents, community members and NPS staff, has provided input to assist with informing decisions. The Rebuild NPS 2030 draft plan can be viewed here: Rebuild NPS 2030
