School Leadership Development

  • The Office of School Leadership, under the direction of the Chief Academic Officer, provides support and direction to Norfolk's schools, principals, auxiliary sites and site directors.

  • Welcome to School Leadership Development,

    Kimberly Gray, Ed.D.

    It is my honor and pleasure to serve as one of the Elementary Executive Directors. I am fortunate to be starting my 30th year with Norfolk Public Schools. I have had the honor of serving under many distinguished educators and fortunate to play a part in mentoring many of our current leaders.

    I began my NPS career as a second grade teacher at Poplar Halls Elementary School. I moved to Little Creek Elementary under a grant opportunity and then to an Assistant Principal at Richard Bowling Elementary School.  I served one year there as the principal and then began a 13-year tenure at Jacox Elementary School with an amazing team, bringing the school to full accreditation.

    I was fortunate to return to Little Creek and serve as the principal for five years, prior to embarking on my new role at central office.

    I received my undergraduate degree at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and earned my Masters and Doctorate degrees from The George Washington University.

    I am the proud mother of one son, who attended Norfolk Public Schools as well.

    In this role it is my job to support the re-design of Norfolk Public Schools with a focus on Literacy and Leadership in all my schools. It is a pleasure to visit schools daily and be involved in support of both the principal and staff in moving all students to higher levels of achievement.

    My role is also to support families and the larger school communities that support each of our schools. I look forward to working with all of you as we move Norfolk Public Schools to new heights for all children!
