The Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is committed to providing a clear understanding of the diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) work within Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS). Our work aligns with the division's core values and strategic plan, Compass to 2025. We strive every day to ensure that all students, staff members and families are treated equitably and respectfully and can thrive as part of the larger VBCPS community.

The DEI office works to promote inclusiveness and the removal of any barriers or obstacles that impact academic success. We not only validate the uniqueness of each and every member of our community, we affirm individuality and multiple perspectives. We honor the cultural identities and diverse perspectives of our entire school community.
