NNPS Named a District of Distinction

(12/02/2015) - Newport News Public Schools was named a District of Distinction by District Administration Magazine for the successful launch of SPARK, the Summer Program for Arts, Recreation and Knowledge, in July. SPARK, part of NNPS' extended learning initiative, provided a comprehensive menu of full-day instruction and enrichment activities for kindergarten through 12th-grade students. With meals and transportation provided, no tuition costs and a wealth of classes, workshops and field trips, SPARK transformed summer into a positive youth development program for nearly 2,000 students.

The Districts of Distinction recognition program honors school districts that are leading the way with new ideas that work. Newport News Public Schools was featured in the magazine's November 2015 edition.
