Great Neck and Salem Middle schools in Virginia Beach have once again received distinction as AVID National Demonstration Schools. This elite designation has been awarded to only 200 of 8,000 AVID schools in the United States and around the world. AVID National Demonstration Schools exhibit a college and career readiness culture through rigor and high expectations for all students throughout the school.
The Virginia Beach School Board has etablished attendance and eligibility criteria for those students who request out-of-zone transfers or have been transferred to a school other than the students' established attendance area. School Board Regulation 5-14.1 identifies and explains these requirements in detail. Unless otherwise specified in policy or regulation, a request for an out-of-zone attendance shall not be approved by the appropriate school official where a school exceeds its optimum building utilization level by ten (10%) percent or more.
Prior to requesting an out-of-zone transfer, please read School Board Regulation 5-14.1 and use the appropriate Student Placement Request Forms available below.
