VDOE approves JMU lab school

The Virginia Board of Education (VDOE) approved James Madison University’s Lab School for Innovation and Career Exploration in partnership with Blue Ridge Community College and
Rockingham County public schools.

The lab school will foster innovation, grant career exposure
to students, and serve as a preprofessional teacher development that sustains JMU’s teacher preparation and licensure efforts.

Governor Youngkin has $100 million funded to lab schools
through the General Assembly.

The VDOE is working with 20 more lab schools of higher education to open in 2024.
