The annual Back to School Bash for Paintsville Independent will be on Tuesday, August 11th. The bash will take place at PES from 5:00-6:30 pm and from 5:30-7:00 pm at PHS. Hope to see all of the Tiger Family and celebrate the start of another great school year!

Kindergarten University---Wednesday July 29th

Kindergarten University will be held on Wednesday (7/29/15) from 10 am until noon. The morning will begin in the cafeteria with introductions. Children will then get to meet the teachers and k assistants, see the classroom, meet other students in their grade, and do fun learning activities. If you have not yet enrolled your K age child be sure to call or stop by our office this week. Our number is 789-2651.




On Thursday (7/30/15) we also be giving the Brigance screener to first-time K students. This one-on-one state required screener lets us see what skills your child can already do (such as counting or saying the alphabet) and better plan for their learning once they start school. We have times available for sign up in the office. It takes around 15 minutes to complete.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Paintsville Independent Schools will initiate a 1-1 Technology Plan, which will begin during the 2015-2016 school year, where the district will be purchasing Google Chromebooks at both Paintsville Elementary and Paintsville High school.


Here is the link to the make/model of the chromebook our district purchased for our students. http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-C201-11-6-Chromebook-Rockchip/dp/B00VQP3DNY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1437344997&sr=8-2&keywords=asus+chromebooks&pebp=1437345006586&perid=1TP10381KXTDMCJZ4G3V


The Paintsville Board of Education recently approved a BYOD(Bring Your Own Device) policy, so students can bring their own devices and use in the classroom.  We encourage students to bring their own devices for use at school, in grades 5 and up. 


Under the downloads section, you can read about our plan, as well as download our BYOD policy. 


For the 2015-2016 school year, the Paintsville Independent School District will not obtain the services of SchoolCast to provide a stakeholder “all call” information system.  At this time, we are exploring potential options to provide a cost-effective method to distribute district wide information.


Until further notice, the Paintsville Independent School District will provide official announcements through the following sources:

Radio:                   WKLW, WSIP, WQHY

Television:          WYMT, WKYT, WSAZ

Newspaper:       Paintsville Herald, Big Sandy News, Around Paintsville

Websites:            Paintsville Independent Schools, Paintsville elementary  school,  Paintsville High School


Additional radio & television sources will be added at a later date.  If your organization wishes to have information added to school/district websites, please contact the building principal to receive approval.  After approval, please contact Joseph Schmitt, Director of Technology, or  Bryan Auxier, ARI Grant Coordinator.
