The Newport School Committee is seeking community members to serve on the Newport Public School Process Review Subcommittee. This subcommittee will meet over a 4-6 month period to review internal processes to ensure efficiency and effectiveness and make recommendations for improvement along with associated costs.
The goal of this subcommittee is to identify improvements leading to teaching, back-office, administrative, finance and climate improvements by looking at best practices from other districts.
Please submit a letter of intent if you wish to serve, including your life experience and necessary perspective for the work of this subcommittee. All letters should be emailed to email@example.com no later than May 15, 2019.
SCHOOL REGISTRATION AND TRANSLATORS ARE AVAILABLE AND PROVIDED AT ALL TIMES!
It has come to our attention that individuals are charging families to complete registration paperwork and charging per student fees. Please be aware that Newport Public Schools does not charge for school registration, and translation services are provided if needed, at no cost to the families at any times. No one should be charging families and students to register. This service is free through the Newport Public Schools.
Congratulations to Millena Carapia, currently a 5th grader at the Frank E. Thompson Middle School! Last spring, while a 4th grade student at the Claiborne Pell Elementary School, Mellena worked with Art Supervisor Diane Sheehan on artwork to represent the State of Rhode Island for the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House. Millena worked on a design with the state flag, bird and state flower. Each state is represented at the annual Easter Egg Roll, and Mellena Carapia’s design was selected as the Rhode Island design! What an amazing honor!
