VBCPS outperforms local divisions along with comparable divisions in the state following preliminary SOL data release - Projects accreditation again for 2022-2023

All of Virginia Beach City Public Schools’ (VBCPS) 82 testing sites are projected to earn state accreditation again for 2022-2023 following the Virginia Department of Education’s (VDOE) release of preliminary Standards of Learning (SOL) test scores and school quality indicators data last week. The data shows VBCPS outperforming all local districts in reading, writing, math and science.  The division also outperformed seven other comparable divisions in Virginia in reading and mathematics for the first time in recent history.

"While we expected a drop in scores given the enormity of the circumstances we’ve faced the last two years, the fact that we’re still projected to maintain 100 percent accreditation is something we’re extremely proud of,” said VBCPS Superintendent Dr. Aaron Spence. “It is a testament to the dedication and effort by our educators and the resilience of our students who have all worked tirelessly to overcome some truly unprecedented obstacles. I can’t thank our teachers and staff enough for the outstanding work being done in our classrooms to build up each individual student through strengthening relationships, transformational learning, and the focus on social and emotional needs. Results like this are proof that it all makes a difference!”
