The School Board of the City of Virginia Beach voted to name Dr. Donald Robertson Jr. as superintendent at its meeting Jan. 23. A native of Hampton Roads, Dr. Robertson began his career as a math teacher with Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) in 1988 and progressed in leadership roles including assistant principal of Bayside High School, principal of Salem High School, chief strategy and innovation officer, chief schools officer, chief of staff and acting superintendent.
Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) is proud to serve the many military families who work and live in our community. Approximately 25 percent of the school division’s student population is comprised of active-duty, military-dependent youth, and VBCPS is committed to providing support, resources and enriching programs to enhance their educational experiences and support their families.
VBCPS is fortunate to partner with the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA), which has awarded the school division multiple grants to support social, emotional, STEM and special education initiatives. From parental deployments to the academic and social challenges that come with changing schools, VBCPS strives to ensure families have the best resources possible to assist students in reaching their full potential.
This webpage is designed to provide information to military families that are relocating to Virginia Beach and have questions about registration, school locations, academic programs, graduation requirements and calendars. It has links to additional resources and contact information for military school counselors who can provide additional assistance to relocating or current VBCPS military families.
