Message from the Superintendent
Hello Floyd County families,
Thank you for the resiliency and compassion that has been exhibited as we go through these unique times together. We are here for each of you so feel free to reach out to me or any member of our administrative team.
We are faced with new challenges this school year and our teachers, staff, and administration have worked to make the 2020-2021 year as positive and meaningful as possible. Floyd County Public Schools was recently recognized by the VDOE and by Virtual Virginia for the way we are meeting the challenges of educating during a global pandemic. With that said there are still many improvements desired.
There are aspects of educating children that will not change as a result of the current situation. Reading with or to your child(ren) is without a doubt a great way to spend time with them as well as one of the most powerful activities you can do to help them succeed academically and socially. Literacy is the foundation for learning.
The pandemic has not stopped our growth and progress in increasing student and community experiences and resources. Our Collaboration and Career Development Center construction is underway. These are exciting times for the future of Floyd County. We have added a Computer Science program at FCHS and have been accepted into the Amazon Future Engineers program. Our new heating and cooling systems are being completed and all schools will have a new heating source come this winter and air conditioning by the spring. We are thankful for the support of the Floyd County School Board and Floyd County Board of Supervisors.
Families and children will always be the most valuable resource in a community. The positive partnership we form with you is necessary to help your child(ren) reveal their potential and realize their dreams. Feel free to reach out anytime. Take care and always remember we are in this together.
John F. Wheeler, Ed.D.
