Alleghany County School Board Announces

Superintendent Search


(October 6, 2020)—The Alleghany County School Board will begin the process of hiring a new superintendent by seeking public input on qualifications.


The school board has created a survey related to superintendent criteria, which is available at and on the home page of the division web site. The deadline to complete the survey is October 27, 2020. Hard copies of the survey will be available at the Central Office Complex, at each school, and at the two public libraries. 

Hard copy surveys should be sent to:

                                    Alleghany County Public Schools

                                    Attn:  Lorie Bess, Clerk

                                    100 Central Circle

                                    Low Moor, VA 24457


The Board will also host a public hearing on Tuesday, October 20, 2020 in the gymnasium at Callaghan Elementary School beginning at 6:00 p.m.


“We are asking our community to please take a few minutes to fill out the survey so we can compile a list of qualities they would like to see in our next superintendent," said School Board Chair Jacob Wright, "Finding a superintendent that is a great fit for our students, our community and our staff is the number one priority for the Alleghany County School Board.”


The Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) will assist the board with the superintendent search.
