Visitor Management Tracking System
As part of our efforts to provide the safest learning and working environment possible, the school division is moving to a technology-based visitor management system that will allow for instant identity verification, the printing of destination specific name badges, and a review against a national offender database. Any person wishing to access a school building beyond the security desk will be asked to present a valid driver’s license or military ID. Once the ID is scanned and the information is processed, a temporary badge will be generated with the visitor’s name, time of entry, and desired destination. All information scanned into the system will be considered confidential and will not be distributed to third-party vendors. Please click on the link, Visitor Check-In, for more details.

Similar to the previous program, students will receive help from state certified teachers. Homework Help operates from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. Students can access Homework Help at the following City of Virginia Beach website: https://www.vbgov.com/government/departments/libraries/kids/Pages/homework-resources.aspx.
