VBCPS announces snow makeup plans
and adjusted SOL schedule

Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) will add 20 minutes to the end of the instructional day to recoup time lost due to the March snow closures. The adjusted schedule will be in effect from Monday, March 31 to Thursday, May 8. This schedule, recommended by many parents and staff, will provide teachers and students time to prepare for the SOL testing.

In addition, the SOL testing window for all schools has been pushed back to begin May 19.

Please note the additional 20 minutes will not be added to the already scheduled Saturday, April 26, makeup day.
