District Welcomes New Teachers & Administrators

The 2017-2018 school year brings with it a new “class” of teachers and administrators to the Loudonville-Perrysville Exempted Village School District.

“Due to retirements, resignations and transfers we’ve had a significant amount of work to do in the area of human resources this spring and summer,” said Superintendent Catherine Puster.

Puster is one of two administrators taking on new roles.  She replaces veteran L-P Superintendent John Miller who retired following 18 years of service to the district.  Christine Butts, currently the district’s Director of Pupil Personnel Services, assumes Puster’s former position as Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment.

“I’m pleased with the results of our recruiting,” Puster stated.  “The Board of Education has employed outstanding teachers who will bring rich experiences to our students.”
