One of the most significant new additions to the Daily News’ Web site is something that I think will benefit both online users and readers of the Daily News’ print edition. I hope it especially will be of value to all those who have an interest in the Norfolk Public Schools — students, parents, grandparents and many others.
It’s called the Panther Project and it was an idea I first broached to Marlene Uhing, superintendent of schools during the 2008-2009 school year.
Don’t quote me, but here’s basically what I remember suggesting to her: “The Norfolk Public Schools has so many positive things going on throughout the district. And each of the schools has its own Web site, which does a good job. But if you’d be interested in working with the Daily News, we could help share information about the public schools and its students and faculty to many, many more people.”
