Message from the Superintendent
Greetings from Floyd County Public Schools:
We are excited about what the 2019-2020 school year has in store for our students, staff, and community. Thanks to the efforts of our staff, our School Board, and community partnerships we have made great strides in meeting the needs of our children in the first two years of our six-year vision. Details of our progress are outlined on our website under “About Us” then “Budget & Six Year Vision” as well as under "Collaboration or Career Development Center".
We are strengthening our partnerships with Virginia Tech, Radford University, New River Community College (NRCC) and our own area businesses to explore internship and degree program opportunities. We are expanding the experiences for our students and involving high engagement project centered activities to develop problem solving and creativity.
We have continued our efforts to make every household in Floyd County literacy rich by providing a resource back pack for any 3, 4, or 5 year old resident of Floyd County. Please call our school board office (540-745-9400) if you know of a child or family in need of this resource, who we haven’t already visited. Please read to your children often, the benefits are endless. Reading strategies are provided in this handbook.
The most beneficial resources for our children are our staff and the families of our students. Our staff continue to create opportunities for growth, allowing for each person’s potential to be revealed and their dreams a possibility. We do this in part by conveying to our students that they are safe, cared for, and we all want them to be successful.
Please feel free to contact myself or any of our leadership team at anytime. We wish you all a memorable and successful school year.
John F. Wheeler, Ed.D.
