Hundreds of school board members from across the commonwealth descended on Richmond Tuesday for the 28th Annual Virginia School Boards Association Conference on Education.

It's an opportunity for board members to come together and share ideas and best practices for how to improve learning in their respective localities.

Charlottesville City School Board Chair Juandiego Wade says it's a unique chance for school boards to benefit from each others' strengths.     

"So it's an opportunity not only for Charlottesville, but we learn maybe from what Albemarle County is doing, or what Cumberland County is doing. So it's just an opportunity for us to interact with some districts that because of the distance we might not be able to," said Wade. 

Wade says Charlottesville schools are focused on a variety of ways to improve the student experience, like improving school nutrition.
