In our Plan for Progress, We will use best teaching practices, high-quality instructional resources, and technology to transform education to include personalized experiences that are rigorous, standards based, and authentic, to encourage our students to become lifelong learners with the necessary skills to be successful in college, career, and life.

With that said, WE ARE ALL A TEAM!!!

At Pickerington Academy we would like to support your personalized journey the best we can. Families please continue to monitor your student and their progress in the courses provided.

It is my expectation that we collaboratively find solutions to the obstacles that each student may face. Please continue to reach out to staff for any questions or concerns that may impede student progress.

If you missed picture day on 9/8/23, we will have picture re-takes on Oct. 24th.

Student Handbook

Superintendent's Message

Dear students, parents/guardians,

I am pleased to introduce the Student Code of Conduct for Pickerington Local Schools. Our code of conduct is a comprehensive resource designed to support the growth and development of our students, as well as ensure their safety and well-being while they are in our care.

Our mission in Pickerington Local Schools is to educate for tomorrow by ensuring every student is prepared for life after graduating, whether enrolling in college, enlisting in the armed forces, or following their career path. An important first step towards fulfilling this mission is to provide a learning environment that is orderly, safe, and positive. As Superintendent, one of the responsibilities I hold most seriously, is to provide a safe and secure environment for students and staff.

Students and families, PLSD is privileged to partner with you in cultivating a safe environment for all of our students to thrive academically and socially. Please review with your child the expectations for conduct and attendance found in this handbook. Working together, we can continue to keep schools among the safest places in the community for children to learn and grow.

Thank you for your commitment to PLSD.


Chris M. Briggs, Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools
