Russell County Superintendent

     Welcome to Russell County Public Schools in the Heart of Southwest Virginia!

     Russell County Public Schools stands as one of fifty-three school divisions in the Commonwealth of Virginia which can proudly say
     we have all our schools fully accredited by the Virginia Department of Education.  Given this time of very tight budgets and efforts to
     find additional opportunities for funding, this is a tremendous accomplishment!

     Russell County Public Schools is comprised of the three larger communities of Honaker, Lebanon, and Castlewood.  We have 3,752       
     students in twelve (12) schools and a Career and Technical Education Center. 

     In working with our Board of Supervisors, Russell County Public Schools has restored our Agriculture program at our three (3) high      
     schools and our Career and Technical Education Center.  Students will be exposed to Forestry, Animal Science, Turf Management,
     and other related fields.   Additionally, students have the ability to secure college credit through our dual enrollment relationship with      
     Southwest Virginia Community College and the A. Linwood Holton Governor’s School.
