Welcome to the Greatest Summit on Earth!

#VBDLSS is a free, live, concurrent conference for VBCPS educators by the educators of Virginia Beach City Public Schools.   

Due to social distancing guidelines and procedures, most sessions are available in both face-to-face (red) and live-streamed (orange) environments. Please note that there are some sessions that are ONLY offered in a virtual format (green). Face-to-face spots are limited and will fill up quickly. However, if your desired face-to-face spot is unavailable you can always choose the live stream option.

The flexibility of this conference allows you to attend in a multitude of ways. You can choose strictly face-to-face at Salem HS, live-streamed/virtual from the comfort of your home, or a mix! There will be learning lounges located at Salem HS for you to utilize throughout the day for attendees wanting to do both face-to-face and virtual options.
