  • We believe in open communication and a collaborative process to engage community stakeholders in the educational decision-making process.
  • We believe in the value of effective professional development, careful long-range planning, and progressive policy development and implementation.
  • We believe in the value of leadership by example, an optimistic approach, and conscientious management.
  • We believe that all students and staff should have the opportunity to reach their maximum potential in a safe, caring, optimistic, and respectful environment.
  • We believe that the Board of Education is responsible for developing budgets that are consistent with the district mission while simultaneously promoting a livable district for our citizens.
  • We believe that the Board of Education is responsible for supporting excellence in teaching and providing a balance of activities that motivates individual students to become lifelong learners and contributing members of society.


We will focus attention on student motivation and engagement by supporting strategies and training needed to heighten each student’s interest and engagement in his or her academic and extracurricular programs.

We will prepare students for success in the 21st Century with increased learning opportunities and increased student participation in the areas of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math (STEAM).

We will target student mastery of foundational and grade-level ELA skills and literacy achievement through district-wide ELA program development.
School Budget Vote Results
I am pleased to share with you that the 2023-34 NCS school budget passed by a margin of 197-50.  We are deeply appreciative of the support the NCS community has and continues to provide our district.

In addition, the EV Bus Proposition passed by a margin of 186-61. This will allow NCS to complete needed infrastructure which will allow us to move forth with our EV federal grant which was awarded last year.

Rob Brautigam, Jacob Hall, and Kelley Louthan were all re-elected to the NCS school
board.  We are very grateful for the continued leadership that Joe, Jake, and Kelley will provide our district.  

The Naples Library budget passed by a margin of 197-49.  Linda Strauss-Jones and Pamela Steffen were elected to Naples Library Board seats. 

Many thanks to everyone who participated in this year's budget vote process.

NCS Superintendent
