Superintendent- Dr. Nicole L. Dice

Mrs. Dice
Welcome to the Turkeyfoot Valley Area School District, home of the RAMS. We are a small, rural district in Somerset County, Pennsylvania with students in K4 through 12th grade. As a former principal in the district, I feel privileged to be your superintendent.

I look forward to continuing my role here fostering community relationships and developing programs for district growth.  Building strong partnerships among parents, students, teachers, and our community is one of my top priorities.  By all of us working together, we demonstrate the value of teamwork to our children and can help empower them to reach their goals.  I am confident that together we will continue to move Turkeyfoot Valley Area School District forward as a model school focused on meeting the needs of all students while developing the skills necessary for success after high school.
