1-to-1 device initiative launching in the fall

Every student in Newark City Schools will have access to a computer during the 2021-22 school year and beyond through a one-to-one device initiative. The district has purchased more than 3,100 Chromebooks with grant money — enough for every student in grades 6-12 — and will use existing devices to provide in-school access to all elementary students. The $1.2 million purchase is made possible through many grants: $419,000 from the City of Newark’s COVID-relief funds; $535,000 from the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund; and $270,000 from Special Education funds.

April 2021 Citizens of the Month

Superintendent David Lewis was able to visit classrooms across the district this month to congratulate our April 2021 Citizens of the Month. Students are honored monthly based on their actions inside and outside of the classroom at school. They are nominated by their teachers. Usually, students are able to invite their families to a pizza lunch to recognize their achievement. This year, students are being recognized in front of their peers, with a certificate and coupons. Find pictures of the students by clicking here.
