    We look forward to having students and staff return to school full-time for the 2021-22 school year. “We know that students benefit from in-person learning, safely returning to and maintaining in-person instruction in the 2021-22 school year is a priority”. (CDC, July 2021) Using recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE), Staunton City Schools will implement the following mitigation measures. We appreciate your cooperation in advance as we work to stay in school, healthy, happy, and learning.

    On April 21, 2021, the U.S. Department of Education issues an Interim Final Rule (IFR) on ARP Act ESSER III funds. The IFR was effective immediately and has the authority of law. The IFR requires that each LEA that receives ARP ESSER III funds must submit a plan that describes how it will use ARP Act ESSER III funds. Click Here to View the Plan for Staunton City Schools

  • VDOE Family Engagement Survey

    Each school year the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is required to report to the U.S. Department of Education the “Percent of parents with a child receiving special education services who report that schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving services and results for children with disabilities.”  Your participation in this survey will help VDOE collect additional information to identify training needs related to the special education processes.  Parents who have more than one child receiving special education services should submit one survey for each child receiving services.  The VDOE will use the results of this survey to improve parental involvement in the special education process and improve outcomes for all students within the Commonwealth.  This survey is not intended to measure your satisfaction with the special education program process.  Rather, this survey is asking you to reflect upon your experiences during the past school year.

    It is important to note that your response to this survey is being collected anonymously and cannot be personally linked to your child.  You may also access this survey online at the following website:  

    English  ----- English Version of 2020-2021 Indicator 8 Parent Survey

    Español ----- Spanish Version of 2020-2021 Indicator 8 Parent Survey

    The online survey will also provide you with an opportunity to address, in more detail, specific experiences with your school during the past school year. This survey is open until December 17, 2021. If you would like a paper copy of the survey, please contact Samantha Shaw at 332-3934.
