Student Voice at NTPS

  • Did you know that students are the #1 source of information about our schools and the district? That's why student voice is a primary focus area for NTPS. Superintendent Clemens and the Board of Directors adopted a policy to appoint Student Advisors to the School Board. Each high school selects a student representative to serve on the School Board, attend meetings, and offer feedback. Annually, all students in grades 4-12 are surveyed to assess NTPS's organizational effectiveness.

    Additionally, Supt. Clemens created a Superintendent's Student Advisory Council that includes representatives from each of our schools, from 5th, 8th and 12th grades, respectively. The group meets four times a year and discusses a variety of topics, including school culture and climate, community service, and leadership.
