The River Valley Local Schools serve approximately 2,000 students in Marion and Morrow counties.  Formed in 1962, the River Valley Local School District has a proud tradition of academic achievement.


Our Commitment is Unwavering 
Although we are dispirited after the most recent election results, our commitment to our students will not change. I appreciate your efforts each and every day to teach our kids, reach our kids, and celebrate our kids. I also appreciate your support for the levy and your positive presence in the community.
Despite the levy being turned down by our community, our vision of higher student achievement cannot become cloudy. Let us focus on what we have and how we can use our current funding to reach all of our goals.
As we rework, rethink, regroup, and redouble our efforts to secure the funding we need, remember River Valley is the school district of choice in Marion County, and it will continue to attract families who want an excellent education for their children. 
As we move forward together, let’s remember that we are a family, and together we can achieve all our goals.

Thank you for your vocal, visible support, and for your continuing belief in the outstanding education here in River Valley Local Schools. 
James P. Peterson, Superintendent
