NPS Clarity 2020

Message From the Board

Letter from the BoardIt is with much pride and enthusiasm that the Newark Board of Education announces the one- year strategic plan “NPS Clarity 2020.” With the guidance of our Superintendent Roger León, this plan promises to unify and align all of the district’s systems and create opportunities for continuous learning for our students, staff, and community.

The Board is looking forward to implementing the systems that embrace, celebrate, and empower the diversity among all of our students and staff.

The Board believes that by establishing clarity on the district’s role in the creation of a new ecosystem in Newark, we will find new collaborations and broaden current partnerships in expanding the scope of work from conception to cradle and college to career.

We join the Superintendent in thanking everyone who participated in the community conversations and roundtable meetings. The time and commitment to this one-year strategic plan is evidence of our desire as a community to become united.

Report Summary

NPS Clarity 2020 ReportThe Newark School system is 163 years old, and Newark is the third oldest city in the nation. We are the largest and oldest school district in the state of New Jersey and educate over 55,000 students across various types of schools (public, private, and parochial). On February 1, 2018, the District began the transition from state operation to a locally controlled board of education.

Full local control restores the power of the locally elected school board to select the Superintendent and reestablishes the Newark Board of Education as the body that governs the District. Now led by Superintendent Roger León, the first locally appointed superintendent in twenty-three years and the first Latino Superintendent in the City’s history, this is a watershed moment for the District as we embark on a new vision for education in Newark.
