Buckingham County (Va.) Teacher's Daily Registers, 1886-1895, are two volumes from Slate River school district, white schools numbers 7 and 10, recording student names, attendance, and grades. The white school number 7 volume is dated 1886-1895 and the white school number 10 volume is dated 1888-1895. The volumes were records of achievement and attendance, and listed the names of students; their sex, age, and grade; and included the teacher's term report (listing days taught, enrollment, attendance, and other statistical information).
