PVSchools Superintendent James P. Lee, Ed.D. announced his plans to retire at the conclusion of the 2018-19 school year.

“Throughout my tenure as Superintendent of PVSchools, I have experienced a level of support most superintendents could only hope for during their careers. I am proud of the collective work we have done to ‘cultivate world-class thinkers’ and the genuine level of care and support we have provided our students over the years. I am grateful for the wonderful relationships I have been able to develop and for the incredible memories I will savor for the rest of my life,” said Dr. Lee.

With 38 years in education, Dr. Lee is highly respected by stakeholders in our District and has a proven track of leading PVSchools for the past 10 years. Dr. Lee started his career as a high school teacher in Suring, Wis. in 1981. “I am proud to say I will finish my career in the district I consider to be the best in the nation – the district I will always refer to as Paradise,” said Dr. Lee.

The board will approve his retirement at the Oct. 4 governing board meeting. This allows the district enough time to recruit and select the best possible candidate and ensures a successful and smooth transition for the future superintendent of PVSchools.
