Office of the Superintendent
Dr. Kevin Newman became the new Superintendent of Schools July 2, 2018. A native of the Northern Neck of Virginia, Dr. Newman served the first six years of his educational career as a high school health and physical education teacher and special education teacher. In 2005, he became an assistant principal at the middle school level in Rockingham County, a position he held for a year before joining the Colonial Beach public school system as principal of its elementary school. During his tenure, the school earned recognition as a 2011 Governor’s School of Excellence. In 2014, Newman joined King George Public Schools as principal of the middle school, leading them to full accreditation status.
Following his stint in King George, Dr. Newman returned to Colonial Beach as its new superintendent, a position he held for four years. In addition to the daily demands of leading the school division, he worked to renew pride in the community after the division’s lone elementary school was destroyed by arson. He also implemented effective instructional strategies to move the division from school improvement status to being fully accredited for three consecutive years.
Dr. Newman says he is ready to work with all stakeholders in the pursuit of high academic achievement for all students. “I look forward to carrying on the tradition of success already established in Manassas City Public Schools with a school board that is committed to and who understands the need for equity, and that is embraced by a supportive and collaborative community,” he said. “My family and I are extremely appreciative of the opportunity to become a part of Manassas City.”
Dr. Newman is a graduate of Bridgewater College where he earned a bachelor’s degree in health and physical education. He earned a master’s degree in administration and supervision from the University of Phoenix and his doctoral degree in educational leadership from Virginia Tech. He is actively involved with the Virginia Association of School Superintendents and a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
