VBCPS announces next 14 schools for full-day kindergarten implementation

As part of its multiyear implementation plan to transition all its elementary schools from half-day to full-day kindergarten (FDK) models, Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) announced the following schools will have full-day programs funded by the division for the 2019-20 school year: Birdneck, Brookwood, Centerville, Christopher Farms, Fairfield, Green Run, Linkhorn Park, Luxford, North Landing, Pembroke, Shelton Park, Strawbridge, Tallwood and Three Oaks.

Including these additions, VBCPS will have 45 schools across the division offering full-day kindergarten classes in the fall.

2019-20 will be the third year of a phased-in expansion of FDK in Virginia Beach using local funds as well as federal Title I grants. The additional FDK sites were selected based on information such as current sections of pre-kindergarten and extended day kindergarten (EDK), literacy benchmark data, socioeconomic data and other unique site factors.

Parents of rising kindergarteners enrolled at these identified schools will receive separate communication from school principals in the coming weeks about the program, school hours and student schedules.
