The Board of Trustees of Greenville County Schools seeks an outstanding educational leader to serve as superintendent of Greenville County Schools, a unified district that serves 70,760 students. The district is the 50th largest school district in the United States and operates 50 elementary schools, 18 middle schools, 14 high schools, and more than 25 special schools, programs, and child development centers.
