School Start Times

In November 2018, the School Board of the City of Virginia Beach approved a resolution for Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) to develop a new school start time schedule that would have adolescent students starting school later beginning in September of 2020.

With this direction from the Board, VBCPS administration will engage the community in conversations regarding possible scheduling scenarios.

Community meetings were offered to provide information about the medical research behind the change in schedule as well as the development process of the options. Attendees were given a brief presentation and were given the opportunity to weigh in directly on the school start times options.

In May, Virginia Beach parents, students, community members and staff were given the opportunity to weigh in on four options to changes on the school start times schedule. See the results of the survey here.

For questions about the four potential options, please contact Daniel Keever.
