We believe that every student deserves an academically-challenging education in a safe and nurturing environment which will allow him or her to become an active participant in society. We invite you to learn more about our school district and its many programs for Rockbridge County residents of all ages.
Special Education Parent Involvement Survey
The 2017-2018 Virginia Department of Education Parent Involvement Survey collection period is upon us. Families who have more than one child receiving special education services should take the opportunity to complete a survey for each of their children. The VDOE has renewed its goal of increasing the number of survey responses we receive.
The online survey is now open and will be available until September 30, 2018. The survey is available for completion in English and Spanish at the following websites:
