Posted on 02/26/2019

As part of its mission to provide students with standards and skills necessary to succeed in a world class economy, Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) provides students the opportunity to sit for sought-after industry credential tests through the Office of Technical and Career Education. Tuesday, Feb. 26, VBPCS crossed over the 100,000 credential mark during testing at Green Run High School.

VBCPS began testing for industry credentials in 2002, the same year that the Virginia Department of Education started identifying them.

"We strive to be the vanguard of school divisions when it comes to preparing our students for whatever they decide to do after graduation," explained VBCPS Superintendent Dr. Aaron Spence. "Whether it's college, an apprenticeship, the military or employment right out of high school, VBCPS provides opportunities to support every young person's career dream."
