Back-to-School Notifications

The Code of Virginia requires local school divisions to make a variety of information available to the public. Much of that information is already included in the Student Handbook or through links or postings on this website. Here are links to recently added information:

Smyth County School Board Seeks Public Input on Superintendent Search

The Smyth County School Board has begun the process of hiring a new superintendent by seeking public input on the superintendent's qualifications. The school board has created an online survey related to superintendent criteria. Hard copies of the survey will be available at each of Smyth County's 14 public schools and the Central Office, 121 Bagley Circle, Suite 300, Marion, Va.

In addition to the survey, the board will hold a public hearing on the new superintendent's qualifications at 7:00 pm Monday, August 22, at the Smyth Career & Technology Center in Seven Mile Ford.

"Hiring a new superintendent is the biggest task a school board will face and we want to make sure that the public has a voice in this process," said School Board Chairman Jesse Choate. "We hope that parents, staff and residents will take time to fill out the survey or attend the public hearing."

The school board selected the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) to assist the board with the superintendent search.

Public Service Announcement Regarding Stopped School Buses

Recently, Smyth County Public School bus drivers have reported an increase in the number of vehicles illegally passing stopped school buses. As a school division, we are committed to ensuring the safety of our students. We are asking our community to share this commitment. We would like to remind our community members that all motorists are required to stop when a school bus is loading or unloading children. All of our drivers are required to complete a pre-trip inspection to ensure all safety devices are working properly. All motorists should be aware that in the event these safety devices are not functioning, you are still required to stop when a bus is loading or unloading children. Drivers are required by state law to stop in all directions when the red lights on the bus are flashing and/or the stop sign is out unless they are travelling on a divided highway. There are penalties for failure to stop for a stopped school bus. Penalties may include:

Our students are our most precious resource, and we take the responsibility of ensuring their safety seriously. Central Office staff, school administrators and bus drivers work together to coordinate our bus stops and have as many students as possible load and unload on the passenger door side of the road. This is not always possible and as a result, some students actually have to cross the road when they are loading and dismissing from the school bus. When a bus is stopped and its red lights are flashing, a child could potentially have to cross the road in front of traffic. Please consider all of the above mentioned safety rules to ensure the safety of our students.
