Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) was awarded a $144,197 School Security Equipment grant by Governor Ralph Northam. A total of $6 million was allocated to 340 schools across 70 divisions in Virginia.

"Our families should feel reassured with the knowledge that when their children attend our schools, they are safe in the care of the teachers and the security of the buildings," said Superintendent Dr. Aaron Spence.

This funding assists with the progress of that crucial work."
