The New Philadelphia City School’s Music Education Program Receives National Recognition - AGAIN!
The New Philadelphia City Schools has been honored with the Best Communities for Music Education designation for the 3rd consecutive year from The NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education. 

“At the New Philadelphia CSD, we are honored to be recognized as the Best Community of Music Education by The NAMM Foundation for our commitment to music education for our students.”  Superintendent/CEO David Brand went on by stating, “With the support of our parents, teachers and our community, our students are benefiting from music education in more ways than meets the eye, or the ear.”
Information on New Philadelphia City Schools' Recording and Monitoring Student Absences

Recently, Ohio law on how school districts record and monitor student absences was changed.  Attendance will now be tracked in terms of hours, not days. New Philadelphia City Schools has worked to align its policies and procedures to the changes in law and to be in compliance with the recently released guidance information from the Ohio Department of Education. 

I appreciate how well our students, staff, and community handled today’s situation at NPHS and WMS.  As an update, a soft lockdown was done as a precautionary means.  We worked in conjunction with the New Philadelphia Police Department. This was completely precautionary due to writing on a bathroom stall. It was decided by the NPPD and NPCSD to proceed with this precautionary measure. There was no immediate threat or risk of harm and all students on campus were safe.

We are continuing to work with the New Philadelphia Police Department to add extra protection for the remainder of the week.  To control the school grounds, until further notice students will not be permitted to leave campus for lunch as they may have been able to in the past.  Students on extended lunch will eat 5B in the cafeteria and report to the Lecture Hall for a study hall the other period.  

The New Philadelphia City Schools continues to keep the safety and well being of our students and staff as our top priority.  We have a comprehensive safety plan that gets reviewed annually and tested many times during the school year by multiple safety forces, including Homeland Security.  The district meets with first responders annually to review and make improvements to our safety plan.
