Notification of the Virginia School Survey of Climate and Working Conditions The 2023 Virginia School Survey of Climate and Working Conditions (Virginia School Survey) will be administered in schools beginning January 9, 2023, and ending on February 24, 2023. The survey will be administered to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders as well as our faculty at all our PreK--8 Schools. The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) and the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) partnered to conduct this administration. This is a tool for division leaders and principals to monitor and ensure all students and staff have access to a healthy, safe, and positive environment in which to learn, work, interact, and grow whether remotely or in-person. Student and adult participation is voluntary. Parents or guardians of students must be advised of the survey at least 30 days before administration and offered the option of declining their students' participation. If you would prefer that your 6th, 7th, or 8th grader not participate, please contact your child's school to let the principal know.

Summer P-EBT Benefits Information This is an update regarding questions we have received about summer Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) benefits. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) has recently made us aware that many households did not receive summer P-EBT benefits due to a card processing error. We have been informed that affected households will be issued a new P-EBT card and that all cards should be received no later than September 30.  If you recently received a P-EBT card that is not working, a replacement card is already on the way. You do not need to take any action to report your invalid card. VDSS has identified the households affected by this error.  Please do not contact the P-EBT call center to order another card, as this may further delay the processing of your benefits.  We understand this delay has been frustrating and want to assure you that we are in communication with VDSS to ensure the issue is fixed as quickly as possible. Schools are not able to provide answers to your P-EBT questions. Please visit PEBTVA.com for the latest information and guidance concerning P-EBT.
