...And Opportunity

Norfolk Public Schools is committed to improving learning for ALL students, so that:

1. All students possess the habits of powerful literacy.

2. All gaps are eliminated while increasing achievement for all.

3. All schools exceed local, state, national and international standards.

4. All students are prepared to access productive options and opportunities upon graduation.

Accountability systems offer opportunities to see where NPS is meeting those targets, and where there is room to grow.
