The Staunton City School Board meeting originally scheduled for Monday, January 23 has been rescheduled to Monday, January 30, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. The Board will convene for a called meeting in the City Council Chambers on the first floor of City Hall. It is the intent of the Board to enter into a closed meeting to discuss and consider the final candidates for interim appointment to fill the current vacancy on the Staunton City School Board, pursuant to the provisions of Virginia Code Section 2.2-3711 (A) (1). The closed meeting will take place in the Caucus Room located on the first floor.

Students enrolled in 4th and 5th grades brought a Tuesday folder letter home to parents informing them about Family Life Education classes that will be provided for 3 or 4 days depending on the grade level. Classes will begin on January 30 and end on February 2, 2017. Parents who would like to view the curriculum and materials for Family Life Education are encouraged to call McSwain Elementary to set up an appointment with the principal. If after reviewing the FLE materials, a parent chooses to opt their child out of this instruction, the Opt Out form is available from the principal.
We are a school division committed to our students and providing an excellent educational program. Our teachers value the uniqueness of each student and strive to challenge them daily. Teaching engaging lessons rooted in the Standards of Learning augmented by a variety of resources makes every day critical for the achievement for our students.
One of a community’s greatest assets is its public schools – the children, their families, and the school division’s staff. The school buildings create the framework in which our students learn, our teachers teach and our support staff provide services to meet the diverse needs of our programs.
Over the past three years, students at Robert E. Lee High School have taken part in a unique opportunity to be “citizen historians” with history teacher Jennifer Goss.
