Fact or Fiction

    As a dynamic learning community of over 4800 students, 680 staff and an overall community of 20,000, New Albany-Plain Local Schools tries to provide as much information on the workings of the district as possible. We realize that we are in the middle of a vibrant and active community with a number of communication channels and sources.

    The district is launching "Fact or Fiction" to better communicate and inform everyone in our learning community and address questions and rumors when known. Whether it is on the sidelines at the soccer game, at Starbucks, in your neighborhood or in the grocery store, we want to be your trusted source for accurate information about our school district.
