Superintendent's Message

Welcome to the Scioto Valley Local School District Webpage!

Welcome to the Scioto Valley Local School District…I am Dr. Todd Burkitt, Superintendent. Our school district is located in rural southern Ohio with the following three school locations:  Jasper Elementary School (K-3), Zahn’s Corner Middle School (4 – 6) and Piketon Junior/Senior High School (7 – 12). Our annual student enrollment is approximately 1,500 while our staff total is 175. Our district works very hard to provide all students with the knowledge and skills to prosper socially, emotionally, and morally in order to be productive members of their community, nation, and world.  
“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”
-William Butler Yeats

I, myself, am a proud product of the Scioto Valley Local School District, having graduated from Piketon High School in 1992. My wife, Amy, is also a P.H.S. alum (class of 1994).  She and I remain residents of Piketon; once a Redstreak, always a Redstreak! In regards to my schooling, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Ohio University; my Master’s Degree and Educational Specialist in School Administration (along with principal and superintendent licensure) from the University of Dayton and my Doctorate of Education degree from California Coast University. I began my teaching career at Western Elementary teaching 5th grade science; I went on to teach OWA/high school math at Piketon High School through the Pike County CTC. My first role as an administrator was serving as an assistant principal and ultimately principal at Jasper Elementary before becoming the Director of School Improvement for Scioto Valley. I have served in my current role as Superintendent since 2007. I am a lifelong learner; and I believe that the value of a positive education is priceless.
“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
-Benjamin Franklin
