Rezoning Timeline for New Schools Announced

Suffolk Public Schools will open two new schools in September 2018.  The new Florence Bowser Elementary School, located on Nansemond Parkway, will house 1,000 students.   The new Col. Fred Cherry Middle School, located on Burbage Drive, will house 800 students. Designed to be future-ready, both schools have open areas for flexible, project-based learning activities.


School administrators and staff are currently working through data to develop rezoning options.  The current student population of Driver Elementary School will most likely be moved to the new Florence Bowser Elementary School, as well as some students currently attending the overcrowded Creekside Elementary School.  Driver will close as an elementary school and transform into the Excel Academy at Driver, a personalized learning center designed to accelerate learning and achievement of students who have not met success in a traditional classroom.  Col. Fred Cherry Middle School is expected to alleviate overcrowding at John Yeates Middle School.


Timeline for rezoning decisions:

  • Thursday, November 9, 2017
    • 4:30 p.m. – Suffolk School Board Work Session: Rezoning Criteria presented to Board
    • 6:30 p.m. – Public Input Session #1
    • Both sessions will be held in City Council Chambers, located on the first floor of City Hall at 442 W. Washington St.

  • December 2017
    • Rezoning proposals made available to the public on the school division’s website

  • Thursday, January 11, 2018
    • 6:30 p.m. — Public Input Session #2
    • City Council Chambers, located on the first floor of City Hall at 442 W. Washington St.

  • Thursday, February 8, 2018
    • 7 p.m. — Formal presentation to School Board
    • City Council Chambers, located on the first floor of City Hall at 442 W. Washington St.

  • Thursday, March 8, 2018
    • 7 p.m. — School Board votes on final rezoning plan
    • City Council Chambers, located on the first floor of City Hall at 442 W. Washington St.

Governor’s Summer Residential Academies 2018

Summer Residential Governor’s Schools provide gifted high school juniors and seniors with intensive educational experiences in foreign language, visual and performing arts; humanities; mathematics, science, and technology; or through mentorships in marine science, medicine and health sciences, or engineering.

Each Summer Residential Governor’s School focuses on one special area of interest. Students live on a college or university campus for up to four weeks each summer. During this time, students are involved in classroom and laboratory work, field studies, research, individual and group projects and performances, and seminars with noted scholars, visiting artists, and other professionals. In the three mentorships, students are selected to work side-by-side with research scientists, physicians, and a variety of other professionals. A director and a student-life staff provide supervision of students 24 hours a day, throughout the program. For more information, please contact Dr. Maria Lawson-Davenport, Supervisor of Advanced Instruction K-12 at marialawson-davenport@spsk12.net or 757-925-6760.
