Newark Public Schools announced today that it will take advantage of a new federal program – the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act – to offer free meals at 19 schools starting next week. The Act’s Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) eliminates the need for parents to complete applications for free and reduced lunch meal applications. All students at participating schools will be served free meals, regardless of their family’s income level.
After a summer of working collaboratively with community members, Newark Public Schools (NPS) is launching a new transportation option geared toward increasing student safety while offering added convenience and accessibility for families impacted by One Newark. To execute this task, NPS assembled the Community Review Committee (CRC), a diverse stakeholder group comprised of parents, community members, school advisory board members, and NPS staff.
Upholding its pledge to provide Newark students with an effective teacher in every classroom, Newark Public Schools (NPS) announced today that for the second consecutive year, it is issuing over $1.3 million in stipends to the district’s most effective teachers. In total, 202 teachers will receive one of four types of stipends, ranging from $5,000 to $12,500. Letters from Newark Public Schools, along with the checks, were issued on Friday, August 15th.
