What if I don't have kids in the schools?

Your property value as a resident and tax payer is tied directly to the quality of schools in Norfolk. When families are looking to buy a home and live in a community, the first thing they look at is the local school system. Businesses look for successful communities to serve when they look for places to hang a shingle. Businesses and families look to the school division as a strong indicator of the economic health of a locality. So the saying goes, "A rising tide lifts all boats." Your support is critical to the success and quality citizenship of Norfolk students who, in turn, will feel the draw to give back to a diverse, strong, supportive community that nurtures them.
