NPS 2023 Bond Implementation Schedule
Thank you for helping us pass the 2023 Bond! This bond was an important measure for our district, and we are grateful for the strong support of our community in making it happen. This bond will provide the funds necessary for the district to make improvements to our schools and increase our capacity to provide a world-class education for all of our students. 
We have provided the NPS 2023 Bond Implementation Schedule, pictured above, to outline when and where projects are taking place. 
Status Update: April 2024
  • Technology:
      • New Chromebooks:
        We are thrilled to announce that our school district is taking a significant leap forward in integrating technology into our classrooms by adding 3,600 new HP Fortis 14 Chromebooks. This initiative is part of our commitment to providing students with the tools for testing and day to day learning. The new Chromebooks devices are designed to withstand the rigors of daily student use and will offer our children a robust platform for learning, collaboration, and creativity. With access to the latest educational apps and resources, the Chromebooks will enhance our curriculum and let students access these robust learning apps. We believe that this investment in technology will not only enrich our educational environment but also equip our students with essential 21st-century skills. We look forward to seeing our students thrive with these new learning tools.

      • New Touchboards: 
        We are excited to announce that as part of our ongoing bond project improvements, all Promethean boards throughout the district will be replaced over the summer and into the fall. This upgrade will also include the installation of new and updated document cameras. We are committed to ensuring a smooth transition and will provide comprehensive training and support on the use of these new technologies. Our aim is to enhance the teaching experience with boards that are brighter, more responsive, and faster, eliminating the need for mounted projectors.

Amerman Elementary School: Schematic Design
Amerman Elementary's Schematic Design was created by TMP Architecture and presented to the Board of Education on October 10, 2023. The proposed floor plan shows a new addition on the Southwest side of Amerman. This new addition would become the multi-purpose/cafeteria space along with a new music room across the hall and kitchen and servery space. The former multi-purpose room would transform into a media center. The former media center space would then become the STEAM room (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) and Makerspace. This design was created to ensure a seamless transition into the new spaces that are planned beginning with the construction of the new multi-purpose/cafeteria space.
Meads Mill Middle School: Schematic Design
Meads Mill Middle Schools' Schematic Design was created by TMP Architecture and presented to the Board of Education on October 10, 2023. The schematic design shows that a new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) addition would be added to the south side of the building. The design will improve student circulation throughout the building by showcasing a main hallway from the Fish Bowl to the Gym/Cafeteria. Plus, a circulation area that will connect the current 7th grade classrooms in the E Pod, located in the southeast corner of the building, to the main corridors in a more seamless way.
