The Virginia Beach School Board will hold a public hearing about possibly extending the school day.

The proposal would extended the school day by fifteen minutes.

Officials say this is so high school students can meet graduation requirements.

Elementary and middle schools would see a slight change to start times and dismissal times.

The meeting is tonight at 6 p.m. at the school board administration building.
