PVSchools District Administration

District-wide leadership comes from the superintendent and his cabinet on district-wide quality standards and initiatives, while school principals provide leadership directly on their campuses that is responsive to their individual communities. Collectively, it is their charge to create a safe, healthy, challenging and well-rounded learning environment.
