VIRGINIA BEACH -- A final decision is expected Tuesday on the proposed longer school day for high schoolers.

The School Board proposed adding 15 minutes to the school day in order to help more students perform better while also giving them time for lunch.

This would not affect the length of the school day for elementary and middle schoolers, but their bus schedules would need to adjust to the high school schedule.

If the school board approves the longer day, it will take effect the following school year.
