Superintendent Message

Bearcat Community,

 It has been a very busy summer here at Paint Valley Local Schools. We have several projects that have begun or will begin soon. The Elementary and Middle School buildings received a new roof and the High School building roof will be replaced as soon as materials become available. A new chiller is also on order for the Elementary School building.  (All businesses right now are seeing delayed delivery dates and delays in receiving parts/items due to backorders.)

 Our custodial, maintenance and HVAC staff have been working diligently to get all buildings clean and repairs made before the new school year starts.

 We also have new staff members to welcome to the Bearcat Family, and they are as follows:

Nick Adkins – High School Science Teacher

Taylor Baker – High School Biology Teacher

John Penwell – Middle School Math Teacher

Kennedy Ramsey – 2nd Grade Teacher

Amber Lewis – Innovative Lab Facilitator

Raegen Bush – 3rd Grade Teacher

Miranda Lindsey – 4th Grade Teacher

Drew Ervin – School Nurse

Dolly Smith – #2 Bus Driver

These past few years have been difficult for everyone, and we hope this upcoming school year things get even more back to normal. We want to assure you that we will still be taking precautions for your students health and safety.

Please continue to check our website ( or Facebook (Paint Valley Local Schools) for updates.

 My door is always open and I am always open to listening to new ideas. Together, we can make Paint Valley great.   GO BEARCATS!!!
