Report Looks Good for NPS

The state of Nebraska has issued a report on the state of schools, and it includes a lot of information. Bob Hastings, director of teaching and learning for the Norfolk Public Schools, says the report is very complicated. Hastings says he is pleased with the growth the report shows at nearly all levels and in all subjects at NPS. He says one area they will be working on is the four-year graduation rate. Hastings says he is more concerned that students graduate than that they graduate in four years, but he also understands the importance of helping students graduate in the expected time frame.
