School Board extends contract of
Superintendent Aaron Spence

At its most recent meeting, the School Board voted to extend the contract of Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) Superintendent Dr. Aaron C. Spence through June 30, 2022. The extension does not change his pay or benefits.

"As a Board, we are fortunate to collaborate with a Superintendent who is innovative, passionate and dedicated to providing the most rigorous and engaging learning experience possible for every child in every classroom, every day," said School Board Chair Beverly Anderson. "As we head into the next school year, the division will begin developing the strategic plan for the next five years. We are pleased to have Dr. Spence leading that effort and the work that will follow."

During Spence's time with VBCPS, the division has earned full SOL accreditation, created a digital 1:1 learning environment and strengthened resources to meet students' unique academic and social/emotional needs.

"When I visit schools and spend time with students and staff in our buildings, I am so proud to see children working with their peers, using technology to elevate their learning and making connections between their work in the classroom and the world around them," said Superintendent Aaron Spence. "It is awe-inspiring, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to continue to lead a division where both the expectations for students and the outcomes are very high."

Spence is recognized regionally and nationally as a leader in K-12 education. He is the 2018 Virginia Superintendent of the Year, serves on the Virginia Council on the Interstate Compact for Educational Opportunity for Military Children, and is the national chair for the EdLeader21 Professional Learning Community Advisory Committee.
