February 2021 Citizens of the Month

Superintendent David Lewis was able to visit classrooms across the district this month to congratulate our February 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.

NCS Board to evaluate purchase of State Farm building

The Newark Board of Education approved a resolution Wednesday, Feb. 17, to explore the possibility of purchasing the State Farm Building at 1440 Granville Road. The resolution gives the district 90 days to evaluate the potential purchase of the property. The property would allow the district to consolidate preschool classrooms, provide future opportunities for students, and explore business and community partnerships. Newark City Schools’ Board and district officials will complete a financial and comprehensive building condition analysis, as to whether it could fit current and future district needs in a cost-effective manner. During a preliminary analysis, adding on approximately 25,000 square feet to an existing building would cost between $7 and $8 million.
