Certified:  Smith Valley School has two certified position openings. 
.6 time Librarian

Classified:  Smith Valley has 2 1/2 openings for classroom / special education paraprofessional staff.  We are open to what the schedule will be for each paraprofessional.  At this time, we need to fill approximately 2 to 2 1/2 positions. Exact hours of work for each person we hire are yet to be determined, so there is tremendous flexibility possible.

Substitutes needed!
If you like the idea of a flexible schedule, working with a great staff, and fabulous students.......

Peanut Free

Special Announcement:  

We have some staff and students who have especially severe peanut allergies. We do everything we can to prevent an allergic reaction at Smith Valley School by not exposing others to peanut oil in common settings.  We have a peanut gallery where peanut products can be eaten.  Students should tell their teacher in the morning if they will be needing to use the peanut gallery.  Thank you for keeping our kids and staff safe.
On September 26th, 2014 we made an announcement that we are becoming "Peanut Free".  See our page on the development of this                                                    situation:  "The Peanut Gallery"
