PV Schools

Dear Putnam Valley Community:

We need your participation!

As you may be aware, the Putnam Valley School District has established an Educational Facilities Planning Committee to assist the Board of Education in reviewing our current academic and extracurricular spaces, the safety and security of our facilities, and all underlying infrastructure.  The committee will work to ensure that we are effectively supporting our educational and extracurricular initiatives while maintaining a safe and secure learning environment for our entire school community.  The committee will report its findings and potential recommendations to the Board of Education.

Proper planning and implementation result in high quality, high-performing, well designed and maintained school facilities and has a direct and indirect impact on the teaching and learning process. Effective facilities management can contribute to the success of every student.

Our schools represent the hub for the Putnam Valley Community and serve as a catalyst for its future.   From kindergarten through high school, we are investing in our children and community for both today and tomorrow.  This is an opportunity to define what our schools stand for and address the needs of our instructional and support spaces as they correspond to the District’s curriculum goals and 21st century delivery of instruction.

We are inviting community members, parents, teachers, district leaders, professional staff and students to participate in this committee.  We ask that all committee members commit to attending meetings on the following dates:  10/12, 10/24, 11/9, or 12/6.  Meetings will be held in the library of the high school.  First meeting: Thursday, October 12, 6:00-7:00 PM.

The committee will be asked to develop an independent assessment and analysis of short and long-term facility needs of the district.


  • Help to create and support schools as centers of community that offer school-based supports to children to eliminate barriers to success and serve the broader community.
  • Improve facilities management, including maintenance and capital improvement programs.
  • Secure adequate and equitable facilities funding.
  • Assist and advise the Board of Education on facility needs related to the educational program(s).
  • Assist and advise the Board of Education with reference to potential long-term Capital Project recommendations.


If you are interested in joining the committee, please click here or email JDenike@pvcsd.org.  All members will be appointed to the committee by the Board of Education on October 12.

Thank you,

Dr. Frances Wills

Superintendent of Schools
