Community Conversations

  • The NTPS School Board hosts these events to hear from experts and key community members with insight into a specific goal area of our Strategic Plan. Feedback from the event is used to create a Board Determination that is shared with our community and strengthens our district's work in that goal area, keeping us focused on our goals and commitments to our students and families.
