Russell County Public Schools
|Message from the Superintendent
Welcome and thank you for choosing to visit Russell County Public Schools’ website! I am very pleased to share with you that our students are diligently working to perform at an outstanding level of achievement this school year. Also, many of our students and teachers are surpassing the required objectives and requirements set forth in both the Virginia Standards of Learning and federal Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO’s) legislation. We are fortunate to have School Board members who always place students first. The Board sends its best wishes for a positive, productive school year.
We believe we should strive for quality performance at all levels of the organization, and we must keep our focus on what is best for students as we continually seek to improve. Our school district is located in southwestern Virginia, commonly recognized as the “heart of Southwest Virginia,” and features a strong partnership program with business and industry, interactive distance learning, an alternative school, a comprehensive adult education program, psycho-educational services, and a commitment to the Virginia Standards of Learning at all levels.
Russell County Public School system serves approximately 3,900 students in
pre-kindergarten through the twelfth grade. There are four primary schools, six
elementary schools, one middle school, three high schools, an alternative
school, and a career and technology center. The service area of the school
district is Russell County with a population of approximately 29,000.
I hope you find this website helpful. As we continue to improve and update information on this site, I would ask for your patience. Any questions or comments may be directed to me by clicking here. email@example.com
