Community Invited to Future Focus, a State-Of-The-Schools Budget Address Presented
by Superintendent Dr. James G. Merrill

The Virginia Beach Education Foundation invites the Virginia Beach community to attend Future Focus, a presentation on the state-of-the-schools and the division's 2013 Proposed Operating Budget recently presented to the School Board by Superintendent Dr. James G. Merrill. The event will be held on Monday, February 27 at Landstown High School. A reception at 6:30 p.m. precedes the formal program which begins at 7 p.m. The event will conclude by 8 p.m.

Future Focus will offer attendees an overview of Virginia Beach City Public Schools, focusing on its progress with its cutting-edge strategic plan, Compass to 2015. In addition, Dr. Merrill will discuss the challenges the school division faces in terms of maintaining the quality of educational offerings given the disastrous funding cuts at the state as well as local levels. Following Dr. Merrill's address, a question/answer session will be held.

Landstown High School is located at 2001 Concert Drive. Future Focus is being hosted by the Virginia Beach Education Foundation with sponsorship assistance from HBA Architecture, Virginia Beach Schools Federal Credit Union, and Chili's. For additional information, please contact Sandi Maxwell at 757.263.1949 or by email at sandi.maxwell@vbschools.com.
