Why Membership?

VBEA Membership is open to ALL active and retired employees of Virginia Beach City Public Schools.

Membership in the VBEA connects you to a network of educators who are actively working to improve our profession. Whether a novice or a career switcher, instructional assistant, custodian, food service worker, classroom teacher, or other school employee, we are all driven by similar passions. We believe that education can change the world. We believe that every child can learn. We believe that school employees are true heroes who affect the lives of every student they meet.

As a member of the VBEA, you have:

  • A voice, the ability to make changes in education.
  • A community of support, more than 1500 educators in our district who can help and support you.
  • A better skill set, through professional development and training.
  • A brighter future, as we advocate together.
