Posted on 07/02/2018
New vbschools.com websiteVirginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) launched redesigned district and school websites, Monday, July 2 to provide an engaging web experience for visitors across every device. The new designs for www.vbschools.com feature a clean, streamlined layout and more prominently display the top-viewed and most-searched topics of information.

For example, the new websites include updated quick links to the resources  research showed were the most frequently accessed on the site, including the division’s transportation, school meals, calendar, enrollment, parent portal, school hours and employment page. 
In addition, the Recent News section of the site will continue to share the good news stories that are featured on the division blogs, The Core and Kaleidoscope as well as all VBCPS press releases. Plus, visitors have easy access to the division’s initiatives, such as the teacher appreciation campaign, We Are VBSchools: Great Dreams Need Great Teachers, as well as to information on available volunteer opportunities.  

“A great deal of thought and work has gone into the development of this new web presence in order to best provide all our visitors both an informational as well as an engaging online experience,” said Dr. Aaron Spence, VBCPS superintendent. “This project is just one example of how our school division continues to push itself to identify areas of strength and opportunities for improvement and then works to better meet the needs of our students, families and community.”

In addition to the new www.vbschools.com site, the websites for all of the division’s 86 schools and centers will also have new redesigns. Using the same research techniques used to build the new vbschools.com, the school websites will also feature quick links to the most viewed content as well as a map of the school’s location, a customized slideshow, and a comprehensive calendar of school and division events. 

The new sites will be live Monday, July 2.
