Future Focus address

Virginia Beach City Public Schools Superintendent James Merrill gave his review of the state of the school division during his Future Focus address, held Wednesday night at Landstown High School.

Merrill highlighted many of the division's accolades and achievements and he also addressed the ever-growing gap between funding for public education and the amount of new educational mandates coming from state and federal legislation.
