Important Meetings - Tuesday, August 25, 2020

August 23, 2020

Dear NPS Families,

As you know, last week we asked you to complete a survey selecting your preferred educational model in which to start the year. At the same time, we surveyed our faculty and staff to better understand our staffing for the school year. We are still in the process of reaching out to families who have not yet responded to the survey. 

This process is incredibly complex as we look across the district to fully understand the needs of all of our students and our staff. We are working quickly to analyze these survey results to determine class placements, scheduling, and additional staffing needs. However, the initial survey results indicate that NPS will need to modify and change its proposed recommendation to the School Committee. 

Given this information, the School Committee will meet on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. At the meeting, district administration will share the survey data and provide recommendations on adjustments to the fall learning models. Following the meeting, at 7:00 p.m., the district will host a live Q&A session in which families can ask questions.
