In the past two decades, Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) has replaced 31 of the division’s oldest schools and buildings, with three more underway. These 34 projects represent a capital investment of three quarters of a billion dollars. In fall 2017, the division began the process of updating its long-range facilities master plan to determine which schools should be next. More than 3,500 students, staff and community members responded to surveys or attended community meetings this past year to weigh in on criteria that should be used, as well as potential funding scenarios. As a result, 15 schools were identified as candidates for replacement, along with timelines based on four different funding scenarios. In March, the school division will present the Superintendent’s Estimate of Needs (SEON) to City Council, which may include a request to increase Capital Improvement Program (CIP) funding.
