Superintendent Information

April Haught

As Superintendent, I am humbled and honored to be a part of Ritchie County Schools and to continue to serve the people of Ritchie County. I have been given the opportunity to serve in multiple capacities throughout my career in the Ritchie County School System. During my 33 year career, 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 unique opportunity to build on areas that truly matter to Ritchie County. As Superintendent of Schools, I will work each day to lead our school system in a manner that is consistent with our district’s core beliefs and values.  

Throughout the course of the school year, our district will focus on the areas of building positive relationships and caring for students, staff, and families. While Ritchie County Schools has performed at a high level, we are continuously striving towards improving our practices. Above all else, we remained committed to providing each student with a quality education that prepares them for their future endeavors.  

 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.
