VBCPS values and promotes active engagement of the community in all our schools through volunteer and mutually beneficial partnership activities. Individual volunteers and business, organization and military command partnerships contribute to the academic achievement of our students and the overall continuous improvement of VBCPS.
Partners in Education
The Partners in Education program supports collaborative efforts between schools and community organizations that promote academic success and personal growth for VBCPS students.
Community Support Programs
Community support is essential to the success of the Beach Bags program, which provides shelf-stable meals to food-insecure students, and the VA STAR program, which provides free, refurbished computers to identified students. Both programs are partnerships between VBCPS and the Virginia Beach Education Foundation to close the education gaps that occur when students go hungry or have no access to technology at home.
Volunteers in Education
The Office of Family and Community Engagement coordinates many opportunities for community members to interact and contribute to the academic achievement of our students and the overall continuous improvement of VBCPS.
VB Education Foundation
The mission of the Virginia Beach Education Foundation is to raise private sector support to fund innovative and creative learning programs for the students of Virginia Beach City Public Schools and to reward educational excellence. Community volunteers comprise this nonprofit organization with the desire to encourage support of our schools through tax-deductible contributions.
