Description:
Newport News Public Schools (NNPS) is the branch of the government of Newport News, Virginia that operates the city's system of public schools. , NNPS had an enrollment of 30,568. The district employs about 5,100 people, including 2,685 teachers and teacher assistants.

Organization

Like all public K–12 school systems in Virginia, NNPS is legally classified as a school division. While Virginia school divisions operate in largely the same manner as school districts in the rest of the United States, they have one key difference from their counterparts in other states—they have no taxing authority. NNPS, like all other school divisions in the state, must rely on its associated local government for the bulk of its funding.

NNPS is run by an eight-member School Board of elected officials. Seven of the eight are elected in a ward voting system, while the eighth is selected at-large from the entire city. The policies of the School Board are implemented by a superintendent.

Schools

The schools of NNPS are divided into the three standard levels of American primary and secondary education. , the division operates five early childhood/preschool centers, 25 elementary schools serving grades K–5, eight middle schools serving grades 6–8, one combined middle and high school serving grades 6–12, and five high schools serving grades 9–12.
