Superintendent, Randy Smiley, Announces Retirement


After leading Florence County School District Five for more than 19 years in both Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent roles, Mr. Randy Smiley announced his plans to retire at the end of the school year. 

To help ensure a smooth transition and the school district’s continued progress, the School Board will be contracting with the South Carolina School Boards Association to conduct the search for a new superintendent. They will be seeking the input of staff and the community in this process.

Mr. Smiley is grateful to have had the privilege to serve students, their families, and our faculty and staff during his years in Florence School District Five.

Upon retirement, Mr. Smiley will have completed 41 years in education, and he looks forward to the next chapter of life.  

R. Smiley
