    A message from the Superintendent...

    Greetings to the Pine Valley community:  

    I’m James Przepasniak and I’m elated to return to Pine Valley Central School District for a second stint as your interim superintendent. Previously, I served our Panther families for several months in 2019 before Bryna Moritz was selected to lead Pine Valley CSD.  

    As the search for a new, permanent superintendent continues via our partnership with Erie 2-Chautauqua-Cattarugus BOCES, I eagerly anticipate welcoming back our students, families, and staff for what is sure to be an outstanding 2023-2024 academic year.    


    Preparing each and every student for success is a priority at Pine Valley CSD. Our dedicated employees are poised to provide a high-quality PK-12 educational experience for all Panthers. The start of a new school year in September is a universal opportunity for a fresh start. Every Panther attending our district will kick off the year poised to take advantage of the wide and inclusive variety of in-school and after-school opportunities we offer. I encourage our students to explore our extracurricular activities and stay involved.  


    With a student population hovering around 500 and a team of staff around 146, Pine Valley CSD is one of the smallest and most close-knit school districts in the region. Through collaboration and individual attention, we are committed to empowering our students to set goals and realize their fullest potential. I’m looking forward to better acquainting myself with all our students, parents/guardians, and staff and continuing a long tradition of Panther Pride. 


    Sharing good news and spreading word of all the wonderful things happening academically, athletically, and artistically is one of my top priorities. News about our district regularly appears in area newspapers including The Post-Journal of Jamestown, the Observer of Dunkirk and The Buffalo News. We mail a quarterly districtwide newsletter and strive to keep our website up-to-date with the most relevant information, events, and happenings for the convenience of our community. In addition, we are active on various social media platforms, including Facebook and Instagram and the site formerly known as Twitter; please look for us and follow us @PVCSPanther.  

    I believe we can best communicate by being direct, so I warmly encourage those with questions, concerns or suggestions to please contact me at jprzepasniak@pval.org or 716-988-3293, ext. 3307. I am committed to listening, learning and responding in a way that moves us forward for the benefit of all our Panthers and I look forward to hearing from you.  

    James E. Przepasniak
    Interim Superintendent
