A record $200,000 in grants was awarded to Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) teachers by the Virginia Beach Education Foundation (VBEF) at their annual Teacher Grants Improve Futures (TGIF) Celebration held Dec. 12. The amount, which funds 79 projects, surpassed last year’s awards of $150,000, which was donated by sponsors and raised through VBEF fundraising events.

“I want to thank our amazing Virginia Beach Education Foundation and our generous grant underwriters for allowing our teachers and students to pursue the wondrous possibilities that come with big dreams and big ideas,” said Superintendent Dr. Aaron Spence. “These community partnerships help our young learners walk off that graduation stage and onto whatever path they chose.”
