2020-21 federal grant information
presented to School Board

At its May 26 meeting, the School Board of the City of Virginia Beach received information on federal grants for which Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) intends to apply. For the 2020-2021 school year, the division would receive approximately $14 million if all grants are awarded.

Grant applications will be submitted for the following:

  • Title I, Part A - Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged: Improving Basic Programs Operated by Local Educational Agencies (LEA).
  • Title I, Part D - Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged: Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who are Neglected, Delinquent or At-Risk.
  • Title II, Part A - Preparing, Training, and Recruiting High Quality Teachers and Principals: Teacher and Principal Training and Recruiting Fund.
  • Title III, Part A - Language Instruction for English Learners and Immigrant Students.
  • Title IV, Part A - Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants.

VBCPS applies annually for grant funding as appropriated under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). These funds exist to strengthen and support local divisions in their efforts to improve the quality of education for elementary and secondary students, while following the direction of statewide educational standards.

In addition, through guidelines, instructions and assurances from the Virginia Department of Education, local school divisions must verify usage of grant funding and remain in full compliance with all applicable regulations, policies and statutes. Each school division must agree to implement all assurances for each of the programs and certify that it is authorized by its superintendent and school board to file the application.

For more information about the division's federal grants programs, please contact the Department of Teaching and Learning at 757-263-1429 or Ronda.Michalak@vbschools.com.
