Spring Parent University set for April 12th


Please join us for Spring Parent University, 2008 on the campus of Norfolk State University in Brown Hall (off of Corprew Drive) on Saturday, April 12th from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Parent University is part of the continuing effort to engage parents in meaningful experiences to enhance their children’s education in Norfolk Public Schools. The goal is to provide a forum for parents and other family members to learn ways in which they can help their children meet or exceed high academic performance standards.

Marlon Smith, this Spring’s keynote speaker, offers a good example of the electrifying results when a former electrical engineer resigns from corporate America. Mr. Smith is known throughout America, Russia and South Africa as the "High-Tech Motivator" due to his invigorating energy. As an international consultant, inspirational author, creator of 13 workbooks, he also is a motivational speaker with his own company, Success By Choice.

Title I Takes Teamwork to New Levels

The Panthers were growling, the Bulldogs barking, and the Dolphins swimming. While it might sound like a zoo out of control to some, to Dr. Gloria P. Hagans, senior director for Compensatory Education with Norfolk Public Schools, it was the sweet sound of success.

The Title I Instructional Leadership Academy marked its eighth year on August 18th at the Airport Hilton with the theme “Yes We Can: Working Together as a Team.” In all, 21 Title I principals as well as their instructional leaders (proudly displaying their school mascots on banners) were in attendance for the day-long conference focused on best practices for raising achievement. A Title I school has a high percentage of students who qualify for free or reduced lunch.
