Introduction

Welcome to Putnam County Schools, one of the finest school systems in the state of West Virginia. Putnam County Schools serves more than 9,000 students in grades pre-kindergarten through twelve in 14 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, 4 high schools, and 1 career and technical center. Putnam County Schools is led by Superintendent Harold "Chuck" Hatfield and a five member elected Board of Education.

The Putnam County School system is dedicated to academic achievement for all students. We have a strong history of student support, open communications, fiscal responsibility, and professionalism. In Putnam County, we believe that a rigorous curriculum delivered by highly qualified teachers in an effective environment will foster student success and move students to mastery and beyond. Further, we believe that in partnership with our students, their families, and the community, we can provide the skills, information, and resources to assure that every child will succeed academically.

Our plan for closing the achievement gap and bringing all students to mastery and beyond will ensure that truly no Putnam County schoolchild will be "left behind" and that Putnam County Schools will move from good to great.
