Superintendent Jason BlackWelcome Buckaroo Community!

On behalf of the school board and the district staff, I want to welcome you to Smackover-Norphlet School District, home of the Battlin’ Buckaroos!

We are grateful that you have selected SNSD for your future either as a parent, student, or employee. Our team's mission is to provide our students with educational opportunities and experiences in order to help them reach their full potential. As a proud husband and father of three, I understand the value of a strong school system and the importance of having multiple extra-curricular activities for your student to choose from and be involved in.

At SNSD, we will put our students first and our staff will model positive attitudes and work ethic which are two traits anyone can control. SNSD has a long tradition as being a great place to raise a family and go to school, and we look forward to growing that long standing tradition.

Thank you for choosing SNSD and Go Bucks!
