Norfolk has top urban board.

For a third consecutive year, Norfolk Public Schools has won the Urban School Board Excellence Award given by the National School Board Association's Council of Urban Boards of Education, or CUBE.

The school district's stability and commitment to closing the achievement gap helped influence the judges' decision. The board is focused and shares a vision for students, staff and the community. It demonstrated commitment to school board governance as it worked together and with the community during its superintendent search.

The winning district received $5,000 for its student scholarship fund.

Other finalists include Houston Independent School District and Miami-Dade Public Schools.
