Please tell us your thoughts on school safety.
Superintendent Dr. Aaron Spence has formed a Blue Ribbon Panel on School Safety and Security, which is bringing together community leaders and security experts to analyze Virginia Beach City Public Schools’ (VBCPS) current security practices and procedures.
In announcing the panel, Dr. Spence stressed that our schools are safe places for students to learn and for staff to work. This is a proactive measure with the goal of determining what security measures are working well and how additional resources might be leveraged to further improve school safety.
This spring, panel members will visit schools, review plans and speak with staff before making recommendations to the School Board this summer. To aid the panel in its work, administration would like to gather input from students, parents, staff and members of the community.
Dr. Spence and the Blue Ribbon Panel will host two community meetings Tuesday, May 15, at Kellam High School. However, those who are unable to attend are encouraged to take the following survey to share their thoughts and insight on safety procedures and practices in VBCPS. An overview of current safety measures in place is available on the school division website, vbschools.com.
Thank you for your participation.
