Pre-Kindergarten Eligibility Application Session

The Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) Pre-Kindergarten (Pre-K) program is provided at no cost to at-risk preschoolers who, for the 2017-2018 school year, will be four years old on or before Sept. 30, 2017. Students are selected to participate in the program based on the Virginia Preschool Initiative (VPI) eligibility criteria. Acceptance into the program is not on a first come, first served basis. Acceptance is determined by eligibility criteria and identified risk factors. The Pre-K program is full-day and follows the VBCPS schedule.

Applications for the 2017-2018 school year will be completed at the city-wide application sessions; however, applications are accepted throughout the year. Families will be informed of acceptance and waitlist status via US Postal Service at the end of July.

If you are unable to attend one of the city-wide application sessions, please contact Donna Sawyer at (757) 263-1492 to schedule an appointment.

Introduction of New SOL Testing Delivery Software

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has been working to expand the types of devices that school divisions can use in the administration of Standards of Learning (SOL) online tests. In order to accomplish this goal, the VDOE is upgrading its software from TestNav7 to TestNav8. The software will be phased in during the 2016-2017 school year. As the software is phased in, schools will provide training to all students to familiarize them with the upgraded software prior to test implementation. There are no changes to the subjects tested or types of questions that will be presented. TestNav8 online practice items are only available through the TestNav8 app. Instructions on how to install TestNav8 on various devices can be found here.
