Superintendent's Message

Dear PCS Community Members,


Thank you for visiting our website! We strive to make this a one stop location for information about the school district.


We are excited to continue to serve in what I believe is a truly outstanding school district. We are blessed with a supportive community that values education. We are blessed with a fine facility in which to educate our students. We are blessed with an enthusiastic, caring, and skilled faculty and staff. But most important, we are blessed with almost five hundred bright, kind, and respectful students who come to school every day eager to learn.


The onset of several recent initiatives have helped to keep our small rural school competitive.


  • In 2014 the district instituted the FRANKLIN ACADEMY AND COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE which provides a very low cost opportunity for our high school students to attain over 50 college credits prior to high school graduation. 


  • We have joined the Steuben County Sheriff Department and now have a full time school resource officer stationed here in the school building.


  • The PCS Agriculture and FFA program continues to expand with more course offerings and even greater levels of student participation.


Education has changed dramatically in my twenty-three years in Prattsburgh. New accountability measures, higher academic expectations, and tremendous ongoing advances in technology have made teaching and learning more and more complex. But some things remain the same:


If students feel safe, are nurtured and feel cared for, and if the school and community have high expectations for behavior and schoolwork, then learning will take place. Our job is to keep these values in place in our school.


We all look forward to continuing to work to keep our school a great place for students while meeting the challenges of preparing them for success in the world of tomorrow. Thank you for your continued strong support of our great little school district.



Kory G. Bay, Superintendent
