Hello! My name is Tim Carlier, Superintendent of Fayetteville-Perry Local Schools. As a graduate of Fayetteville, I am honored to enter my fourth year as superintendent, and I am excited about the continued opportunity to serve the students, staff, and community of my hometown, Fayetteville, Ohio.
During my sixteen years in the district, I have been fortunate to serve in a variety of roles; these have included teacher, assistant principal/athletic director, principal, and now superintendent. Those experiences, along with my active involvement in the community, have enabled me to understand the needs of our community and uniquely equipped me to serve those needs as your superintendent. Above all, we must provide the opportunity for all students to receive a quality education and the guidance that will lead them to a successful future. As your superintendent, I assure you that is my top priority.
Each year, we evaluate our district needs and make the necessary changes to continually improve the instruction and support we offer our students in the new academic year. To that end, I am excited to share some exciting changes that are taking place in our district. The Board of Education approved the use of American Rescue Plan funds to purchase a new curriculum for both English Language Arts and math in grades K-10. This curriculum is both structured and vertically aligned to meet state content standards, offers online access to both students and parents, and provides support for both intervention and enrichment. We look forward to reaping the results of this investment for years to come.
We continue to upgrade and improve the technology offered to our students. Our incoming freshmen will be issued new Chromebooks as we continue retiring our end-of-life laptops; this means all students in grades K-9 will have Chromebooks, while our older students will continue to use their current laptops. While all students are 1:1, we will continue to protect this investment by keeping devices for younger students secured at school and not taken home.
In addition to our new curriculum, we will begin providing Multi-Tiered Systems of Support for all students in grades K-5. We have restructured the day so these students can receive both academic and/or social-emotional interventions or enrichments, based on each child’s personal needs. Parents should look for more information on this initiative coming from their elementary teachers. We have been able to retain our Math Intervention Teacher who, along with our administration, is ready and prepared to support our students and teachers as we make these exciting changes.
In the upper grades, we have made some staffing changes in the high school and middle school which will allow us to better meet the needs of our older students as well. In the high school, we have consolidated our Business Education and Family Consumer Science programs to be taught by a certified teacher who is licensed and equipped to meet the needs of all students in these courses. This allowed us to add a much-needed English Language Arts position in the middle school to provide more instructional time for 7th and 8th graders in this critical area, better preparing them for the rigors of high school.
As for school facilities and improvements, the custodial staff has been busy cleaning/sanitizing all classrooms and applying a fresh coat of wax throughout. Our maintenance department has been working hard to keep up with all building maintenance needs and lawn-care/landscaping to keep our campus looking fresh and ready for students to return.
One major project this summer was the middle school gym renovation. We installed new bleachers and newer (used) scoreboards, applied a fresh coat of paint on the walls, replaced parts of the gym floor, applied Bona high gloss finish on the gym floor, and hung a larger American flag to honor our country. The next major project will be a new chiller installed in the elementary building which will be installed and functional around Brown County Fair break. Our transportation department has worked to clean and maintain/repair our bus fleet to assure the continued safe transportation for our students. In October, we will add a new school bus to prepare for replacement of aging buses.
We want to thank all of our parents and community members who took part in the surveys we sent out earlier this year, and I encourage you all to take part in those surveys during the new school year as well. We will continue to listen to all of our stakeholders on topics of concern as we always seek to improve our district and better meet the needs of our students and community.
As we plan for the 2022-2023 school year, I am excited to watch our young people succeed in their academics and extracurricular activities. I want to see our students, parents, and community build strong professional and personal relationships, make positive memories, and continue our tradition of excellence!
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 513-875-4500.
Have a great day and an amazing school year. And As Always … GO ROCKETS!

Hello! My name is Jennifer Spaeth-Mullis. As an alumna of Fayetteville-Perry Local Schools, I am thrilled with this new opportunity to continue serving our district. I graduated from Wilmington College with a triple major in Education, English, and History which qualified me for dual licensure in AYA Integrated Language Arts and AYA Integrated Social Studies, and I recently completed the MAE program from Ohio University. As a life-long learner, I am always looking for new challenges and new ways to improve our district.
Throughout my years at FHS, I have served in a number of capacities, but I am, of course, most proud of my success in the classroom, and I am excited to support our teachers throughout the district by helping them bring quality curriculum and data-driven instructional strategies to their classrooms to provide a superior education for all of our students.
As we move forward in the upcoming school year, I look forward to seeing our students back in the classroom and seeing the smiles on their faces! Our focus is on eliminating the deficits from Covid-19 and ensuring that all of our students show academic growth in the 2021-2022 school year. I have no doubt that our little community is ready to face this challenge and come together to support our students' academic and social-emotional success!
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” I spent many years dreaming of the chance to give back to the school I have loved throughout my life, and now, I am living my beautiful dream of being part of the administration of this stellar institution. My name is Heidi Greco, and I am the Dean of Academics for Fayetteville-Perry Local Schools. As a Rocket graduate, I have spent most of my life immersed in the halls of education in this district. I attended Fayetteville schools before attending Miami University where I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing. From there, I continued my education at Wright State University earning a Master’s of Education in English Degree. I spent my first year teaching in New Orleans after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Then I came back home to Fayetteville and started teaching here in 2008 and was able to spend 11 great years teaching ELA in grades 10-12. During that time, I continued my education, earning another Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership with a principal licensure from the University of Cincinnati and pursued a Master’s in English from Ohio University where I received my credentialing to teach English on the collegiate level. Fayetteville has always been the cornerstone of my life-and I am a proud member of the community. My husband, James, and I bought our home in Fayetteville in 2011, and are happily raising our daughters (Morgan-16, Story-4, and Hayze- 8 months old) in the town.
In 2019, right before the upheaval of the pandemic, I transitioned from the classroom to become the Dean of Academics. I am the first to hold this title at Fayetteville-Perry, and the job has many facets. As Dean of Academics I am the administrator of all things related to academics in the high school. I am responsible for everything from student scheduling, to state testing, College Credit Plus, ProgressBook, graduation requirements and seals, record keeping, transcripts, career planning, and ensuring college readiness. I am a member of the district leadership team, the building leadership team, safety committee, and the curriculum committee. I am trained in PBIS, gifted education, and the 40 developmental assets. I am looking forward to this new school year, and I plan to focus on increasing rigor and development of academics at Fayetteville High School. It is my goal to ensure that all students are afforded an outstanding education and that every Rocket is ready to soar into the future after graduation. I want to continue the legacy of excellence that comes with an education from Fayetteville High School, and I want to help each student develop the skills necessary for success in all they do. I am so excited to continue this adventure into the 2021-2022 school year. Once a Rocket, always a Rocket, and I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for me, for our students, our school, and our community.
I began my career in Fayetteville 27 years ago as a 6th grade teacher after receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Cincinnati. I loved the sense of community and family in Fayetteville, and I knew this was where I wanted to grow in my career! After receiving my Master’s of Education in School Counseling, I transitioned from the FMS Student Services position and Creative Writing Teacher to the full time Guidance Counselor for both the elementary and middle schools. In 2019, I became the District Guidance Counselor providing mental health support for the district.
My husband and I have been married for 31 years. We live within the district and are proud that both of our children graduated from Fayetteville HS. Fayetteville is a wonderful place to live, and I enjoy working in a school district and community where everyone cares for one another as one big family!
As well as being the District Guidance Counselor, I am also the 40 Developmental Assets Coordinator, HERO League Supervisor, Whole Child Coordinator, and District Testing Coordinator working with grades K-8. I am proud to be a part of our district and enjoy that my days are busy with a variety of challenges and will continue to focus on the best interests of our students, families and district.

I have been a Registered Nurse for 31 years. I first started my career at The Christ Hospital and moved into my career at Fayetteville-Perry Local School District in 1994 as District School Nurse. I received my nursing training at The Christ Hospital School of Nursing, University of Cincinnati and Wright State University. I have lived in the community of Fayetteville for the past 19 years. I provide health services for students in grades K – 12.
I have two clinics within the district, the Elementary clinic serves K - 5th grades and the Middle school clinic serves 6th - 12th grades. Some of my responsibilities include monitoring health records including immunizations; performing vision, hearing and scoliosis screenings; medication administration; first-aid and medical advice to students, their parents and staff, and staff trainings.
I am committed to meeting the daily health care needs of students as well as the educational and long term care needs associated with chronic illnesses. I deal with chronic conditions such as Type 1 Diabetes, Asthma, Anaphylaxis and Epilepsy on a daily basis. I collaborate with all staff members and parents/guardians. I strive for the well-being of all students and pride myself with keeping children healthy, safe and ready to learn. It is my goal to be a resource to parents and a partner to health care providers in our community. I function as an advocate for students in the educational setting, focusing attention on students’ physical health and wellness, as well as their mental, social and emotional well-being.
My name is Aric Fiscus. I am entering my third year as principal of Fayetteville Elementary School. As we enter the 2021-22 school year we are excited to have all of our students back in person on campus. This past school year was a challenge on many levels. However, I am proud of how all of our students and staff were able to maintain high standards while still working within limitations to secure the safety of the school population. With the start of the 2021-22 school year we will be moving back to normal procedures during our school day. Our pickup and dropoff will remain the same. We will be putting out a link to our transportation form for parents to fill out online in early August. Our supply lists are also posted on our website so you can fully prepare your child for the upcoming school year. We are most excited to announce that the elementary building will be moving to a 1:1 device program where each student will have their own Chromebook to use for completion of academic work. Although those devices will not leave the building it will give our students greater access to all that can be offered through technology-based learning. Many thanks to the Board of Education, Mr. Carlier, Mrs. Tussey, Mr. Seigler, and all involved for making this happen. Finally, we invite you to attend our open house on August 16 from 6:00-7:30 so you can meet your child’s teachers and we can all kick off the school year on a positive note. I look forward to seeing you then.
As Always, Go Rockets!
Welcome to a new school year at Fayetteville High School -- Home of the Rockets. We are moving forward after a school year different from any other, and we look forward to getting back to normal at Fayetteville High School. It will be exciting for students to once again participate in academics, assemblies, social activities, clubs and athletic events in a more traditional way allowing parents/guardians and community members to attend and cheer on our students in person.
I am also excited to announce that we will have several new staff members this year. This includes the addition of an E-Learning Facilitator who will provide support for students needing credit recovery as well as providing the opportunity for elective classes we may not offer on campus. We have also partnered with Child Focus to provide an additional counselor in the high school to support our students' social-emotional health as we work through the effects of Covid-19.
It has been my pleasure to work with our dedicated high school staff. We are committed to providing a quality learning environment that meets the needs of each student as they prepare academically, socially and emotionally for their future. We look forward to working with you to provide a safe and productive learning environment, and we look forward to seeing you back on campus!
Feel free to contact us with your questions or concerns. We wish your family, and especially your students, great success this school year and As Always……Go Rockets!!
Fayetteville High School Principal
Welcome Rocket Family. As we move towards the holidays, I hope that everyone can find something to be thankful for in the season. Whether it be family, relatives or friends, take a moment to thank the ones around you and appreciate the time that you can share with them.
The Fayetteville teachers and students are working hard in their classes and it is showing in their grades. The end of the second quarter is quickly approaching and I would like to take time to encourage all students to finish the quarter on a strong note. During the month of December we will have our second round of MAP testing, which will give us an idea of where students are and what we need to do, so they are ready for the state test in April.
The middle school fall sports season wrapped up with the 7th and 8th grade girls volleyball teams winning the league championship and the league tournament. The football team ended the season with a winning record, with help from the cheerleading squad cheering them to victory. The basketball season has just begun and we are looking for another great season with the teams.
If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to call the school at 513-875-2829. Hope to see you at school activities and events. And as always … GO ROCKETS!

As your School Treasurer it is my responsibility to ensure that all funds are being safeguarded and expended as authorized. I am committed to performing the duties of my job with integrity and also do my best to meet the demands and needs of our staff here at Fayetteville Schools. I work closely with our Board of Education and the Superintendent in preparing our Budgets to operate our schools.
We are continually examining and remaining conservative while evaluating the “wants” versus the “needs” to successfully provide all that is necessary for the success of our students.
Our lives have been forever changed this last year and a half and many have suffered a variety of sadness and hardships. I will never take for granted the ability to see another person and their smile. May we all be blessed with a new school year and especially for our students to be able to experience memorable “School Days”.
I am always available if an employee or a resident of our district has any questions. I value being able to serve this community.
Lisa C. Tussey, Treasurer
