Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) invites the community to take a survey that will help the division identify priorities for the division’s strategic plan that will be in place from 2020-2025.
Survey participants will be asked to rate from “critical” to “not important at all” the skills and abilities that the division should focus on so that students are successful after graduation. In addition, respondents will be asked to rate from “essential” to “not essential” ways in which VBCPS can support students in acquiring those skills and abilities.
“It’s important to hear from our community what they want students to experience in their local schools,” said VBCPS Superintendent Dr. Aaron Spence. “This input will help set the foundation for the demands of postgraduate success and what our stakeholders see as necessary for our students to thrive in today’s colleges, workplaces and communities.”
Results will be shared with the strategic planning committee comprised of parents, students, school division staff and representatives from the military, business and higher education community. Their job is to take all of the community’s input and develop a strategic framework that will be presented to the School Board for initial consideration this summer.

The last day to take the survey is March 8.
