Welcome to Staunton City Schools. We are delighted to have you and your children as a part of our school division. This handbook is designed to be an overview of activities, educational programs, and general policies of Staunton City Schools; however, it is not inclusive of all rules and regulations that govern the operation of individual schools. The school division’s policy manual, as approved by the School Board, is the official document that sets operating procedures. The Staunton City Schools Policy and Administrative Regulations Manual is available on the school division’s website at www.staunton.k12.va.us. For those that do not have Internet access, copies of specific policies may be requested from the School Board Office. The public is encouraged to inspect, review and offer suggestions in regard to policies.
