Superintendent's Message

Welcome to Patrick County Public Schools! Our core values serve as the foundation upon which we execute our mission, which is to educate all Patrick County children to prepare them for college or a career.
We are committed to providing students a safe and caring learning environment, stellar instruction, access to cutting-edge technology, and relevant learning opportunities that will prepare them for success beyond high school in the 21st Century. We value, respect, and support our teachers because we believe the key to student learning is great teaching. To help inspire and engage students in their learning, we provide teachers ongoing, useful professional development and technology tools to bolster their instruction for the purpose of advancing student learning to the highest levels.  We also enjoy the support of a wonderful parent community, which enhances a partnership for student success.

I imagine that I am the same as other parents out there who simply want better for their children than they had for themselves. I believe that our school system acts in a similar way as parents. We here at Patrick County Public Schools want to be sure that our students are afforded opportunities to learn, thrive, and grow. We want to be sure that our students are given opportunities for future success. We want to ensure that our students are provided opportunities that will enrich and improve their lives.
While the Patrick County Public Schools ranks among the finest in the state, it is our belief that we can make it better. Our dedicated and talented staff bring skill and enthusiasm to their work each day. And we have the privilege of working with children and young people who amaze us with their talents and genius. I want to take a moment and recognize the hard work and dedication of our students, parents, teachers, staff, and employees. We have seen much growth in our academic success and other programs. I am pleased to report at this time all of our schools remain fully accredited.

While we want to take a moment and celebrate our success, we must never remain complacent in our results. While we readily celebrate the increased academic outcomes of our students this year, we also recognize that some of our students still need to demonstrate more growth. As we recognize the importance for success for all of our students in all of our schools. Our school improvement plans will continue to focus on the needs of all our students and how we can better meet their needs.

I am proud to be a part of Patrick County Public Schools. I am excited for the improvement that we have experienced together. I look forward to this new school year and know that we will see continued growth and prosperity for our students.

Thank you for supporting us in the important work of educating our community’s children and young people. We sincerely appreciate this support and our community’s commitment to building stellar schools.

I am respectfully, 

William D. Sroufe, Ed.D.

Division Superintendent
