Superintendent Information

April Haught

As Superintendent I am eager to begin the 2024-2025 school year.  Throughout the course of the year, our district will focus on the areas of student wellbeing and success. As always, student wellbeing is based on the dedication of every employee in the Ritchie County School System. While Ritchie County Schools have performed at a high level, we are continuously striving to improve our practices. Above all else, we remain committed to providing each student with a quality education that prepares them for their future endeavors.

During my 34-year career with Ritchie County Schools, I have had the opportunity to give back to our community as a Teacher, Coach, Assistant Principal, Principal, Director, and now Superintendent of Schools. Each of these positions has provided me with a deeper understanding of the community that we serve. My knowledge of Ritchie County Community and school system has provided me with a unique opportunity to build on areas that truly matter to Ritchie County.

As Superintendent, I fully understand the responsibilities that come with guiding our district forward, and I look forward to working with each of you to ensure the continued success of Ritchie County Schools.
