During its July 9 meeting, the School Board of the City of Virginia Beach voted to extend the contract of Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) Superintendent Dr. Aaron C. Spence through June 30, 2023.

"As we head into the new school year, the Board is pleased to be able to ensure our collaboration with this superintendent extends well into the future," said Board Chair Beverly Anderson. "Dr. Spence has dedication, passion and a tireless desire to provide every student with the tools they require to be a lifelong learner and to succeed in whatever career path they choose."

Spence has led the division to full SOL accreditation for the last two years, supported a digital 1:1 learning environment and a culture of growth that focuses on preparing students for college, the military or employment right after graduation. VBCPS recently received 15 Exemplar Performance School Awards, the most of any Hampton Roads city, from the state Board of Education for exceeding state accreditation standards, narrowing achievement gaps and improving outcomes for students.
