Dr. Aaron Spence accepts national
vice-chairmanship of EdLeader21

Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) Superintendent Dr. Aaron Spence will serve as the national vice-chairman of EdLeader21, the largest professional learning community of school and district leaders focused on transforming K-12 education.

While this is a volunteer position that will not conflict with his responsibilities in Virginia Beach, Spence will be able to highlight the division’s leadership in 21st century instructional design as well as share its dedicated work in providing equitable educational services for every student.

“We are pleased to have Dr. Spence leading Virginia Beach schools and are glad that his colleagues in EdLeader21 sought his leadership in dealing with the challenges facing educators in the 21st century,” said Daniel Edwards, chairman of the Virginia Beach School Board. “As a Board, we know this elevates Virginia Beach’s profile as it reflects the excellent, groundbreaking work throughout our schools.”

VBCPS has been a member division of EdLeader21 since the organization was founded in 2011. Since the organization’s inception, it has grown to a national network of more than 200 public school districts and 20 independent schools across the country.
