      Help us find outstanding principals to ensure
      all Newark students succeed and achieve!

      Newark Public Schools (NPS) is in a historic period of change.  With the appointment of Superintendent Cami Anderson and a significant level of national attention and investment, Newark has an incredible opportunity to transform the school system into one that ensures that all students graduate with the reading, writing, critical thinking, and quantitative skills to succeed in the college or career of their choice.  In NPS, all means all – including students who fall behind or have been considered “hard to serve” for a host of reasons. 

      Currently, NPS has 73 schools serving ~39,000 students, of whom 82% qualify for free or reduced price lunch and 92% are students of color.  Within the district, a sizable number of students do not meet or exceed state standards, and just half of those who attend high school graduate with a diploma.   We are looking for excellent leaders who can drive unprecedented levels of student achievement so that all Newark students can achieve and succeed. (See below for more information on who we are looking for.)

      We need your help.  You can strengthen schools and improve student achievement in Newark by reaching out to talented colleagues, friends, and family to help us identify strong candidates.  We know your time is precious, and we value your support in helping us with this crucial endeavor.
