Welcome Back!

Welcome back! It is great to be celebrating the new school year. We have many new teachers and support staff joining our Nottoway County Public Schools family, so we especially want to welcome our new colleagues. I have great confidence that the 2017-2018 school year will be the best year yet!  Our theme for this school year will continue to be Building Bridges of Success for the 21st Century, because the process of building strong foundations for our students is not complete.  The work that will continue to enable our students to think at their highest levels, while being challenged academically to prepare them for life in this changing and exciting world is a process that carries on.

You know, and this community knows, NCPS is a quality school division and the beacon of light here in Region 8. Often in today’s climate, a school district with a good reputation is hard to find. Yet despite today’s challenges, NCPS enjoys the reputation of being a premier school district, and I thank all of you. It is the quality of work you exhibited in educating our students, and communicating with their parents and our community members that has created this well-deserved reputation.

This school year, I encourage each of you to become even more familiar with each school’s processes. We need your input!  As always, our purpose this year is to support the mission of the division which is: “Nottoway County Public Schools aspires to provide opportunities for students to enjoy life, contribute to others’ well-being, and become responsible, productive citizens in a global community.”

We had tremendous academic successes last school year, and we plan to reach Full Accreditation division wide this school year. We will accomplish this goal by continuing to reach our four objectives, which are to:

  1. Increase Student Achievement
  2. Enhance Teacher Support
  3. Improve Principal Instructional Leadership Support 
  4. Increase Community Outreach/ Partnerships

We are building something great here. NCPS is a school system that continues to rise. We are making the right decisions to ensure that our children can learn and that our teachers can teach in the best environment. You are a terrific group of dedicated professionals, and it is my pleasure to represent the work you do with our children in this community and in this state.  Let’s have another great year!
