Posted on 11/15/2019

The Virginia Beach Education Foundation (VBEF) made surprise visits Nov. 14 to the Virginia Beach Juvenile Detention Center (JDC) and Parkway Elementary School to award checks of $18,802 and $20,000, respectively. These awards are two of 79 Adopt A+ Grants totaling $200,000 that the VBEF will award to teachers across Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS).

"Our division prepares students for college, the military, careers and citizenship," said Superintendent Dr. Aaron Spence. "The success of that mission would not be possible without steadfast community partnerships that enable remarkable opportunities, supports and enrichment for our teachers and young learners. We are so grateful for these relationships and the contributions to educational excellence that they provide."
