YCSD Earns 14 VIP Awards

Posted On: 8/8/2017

Governor Terry McAuliffe and the Virginia Board of Education have released the 2017 Virginia Index of Performance (VIP) awards. This year, 13 schools and the division earned a VIP award. Even more impressive is that two schools, Coventry and Mt. Vernon, have been honored each year since the program’s inception.

Four elementary schools – Coventry, Mt. Vernon, Tabb and Waller Mill – earned the Board of Education’s Excellence Award. This award recognizes schools that have met all state and federal accountability benchmarks and made significant progress toward goals for increased student achievement and expanded educational opportunities set by the board. The state honored 146 schools with this award.

Nine schools – Bethel Manor Elementary, Dare Elementary, Grafton Bethel Elementary, Seaford Elementary, Grafton Middle, Tabb Middle, Grafton High, Tabb High, and York High – earned the Board of Education Distinguished Achievement Award for meeting all state and federal benchmarks and made progress toward the goals of the governor and the board. 231 schools across the state received this award. YCSD was also one of only 15 school systems in the state to earn the award as a division.
