The NPS Department of Interagency Collaboration and Wraparound Services aims to develop strong working relationships with families and community partners and providers to support students’ academic progress and social, emotional, and health needs. Comprehensive wraparound supports focus upon addressing the myriad academic and non-academic barriers that impede students’ academic progress.
The provision of wraparound services is approached through a comprehensive and collaborative, team-based, student-guided, and family-driven process that “wraps” a variety of school and community-based supports around students and families.
The NPS Department of Interagency Collaboration and Wraparound Services also serves to support the unique needs of the school division’s military-connected students and families. A variety of programs and resources are in place to better ensure the academic success and social-emotional well-being of our military-connected students.
Approximately twenty percent (20%) of all NPS students are connected with the military. Their families serve our country through affiliation with all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces: Navy, Marine Corps, Army, Coast Guard, and Air Force; our families include active duty personnel, reserve and guard forces, and veterans and retirees. Naval Station Norfolk, where most of our military families are stationed, is the largest naval complex in the world.
