Comprehensive PlanAfter more than a year of community meetings, Newton Public Schools has outlined several goals and objectives that will help guide the district for the next decade... 
Complete Comprehensive Plan available at newton373.org

Sixteen findings and recommendations including:

  • Instructional practices such as project-based learning, Career and Technical Education, critical thinking, and global awareness
  • Student, staff, and patron safety including storm shelters and protection against retaliation
  • Communication with the public on a variety of policies including bullying, retaliation, and promoting awareness of website information
  • Equity in enrollment and adequacy of facility space to meet the needs of 21st Century learners including flexibility, technology, and small and large group instruction

Five phases for addressing the recommendations:

  1. Create and implement a communication plan to share the district’s policies, procedures and BOE information to the community that is active, visible and interactive.
  2. Incorporate the findings of the comprehensive plan into the programs at all grade levels, review the Walton Rural Life charter, and engage a demographer to identify possible boundary modifications.
  3. Begin the process of acquiring property for possible new elementary and create a design team to assist in the preliminary design and planning for existing intermediate, middle and high schools.
  4. Present scope of work and cost to community for consideration and consider the impacts of the cost and work at district facilities before asking the community what they are willing to support.
  5. Implement the community directive.

Nominations are due March 1, 2017

The Central Kansas Community Foundation-USD 373 Education Endowment invites you to nominate an alumnus of Newton High School for the NHS Distinguished Alumni Award.

The purpose of the award is to recognize outstanding alumni of Newton High School who have distinguished themselves in a significant way since graduating from high school. It may be someone who has had a highly successful career, or has been an outstanding community leader, or has a commendable record of service to others.

Newton High School has produced a number of outstanding graduates over the years and this award program recognizes their efforts. These alumni also serve as an inspiration for current NHS students, as they strive to create their own personal and professional roles in our community, state, nation and world.

Recipients will be inducted during a reception in their honor in conjunction with NHS commencement activities in May. Recipients’ names will also be added to the NHS Alumni Wall of Fame, located inside the new main entrance to Newton High School.

Please visit the Distinguished Alumni Award page for more information and to nominate an alumnus for recognition.

Newton Public Schools is one of 433 school districts in the U.S. and Canada (and one of only two in the state of Kansas) being honored by the College Board with placement on the 7th Annual AP® District Honor Roll.  To be included on the 7th Annual Honor Roll, USD 373 had to, since 2014, increase the number of students participating in AP while also increasing or maintaining the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher. Reaching these goals shows that this district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for AP.
