Administrative Offices


Mrs. Handrych

My name is Ashley Handrych and I am the principal of Lakeview Middle School. Born and raised in Trumbull County, I am a proud 2002 graduate of the Lakeview Local School System. In 2006 I graduated from Bethany College in West Virginia with a BA in Elementary Education and Special Education K-12. I graduated from Adams State College in 2010 with my MA in School Counseling and in 2014, I added an endorsement in K-12 Educational Leadership to my license. Throughout my career with Lakeview Local Schools I have served as a 6-8 Intervention Specialist, Elementary School Counselor, and Director of Federal Programs. Serving as the principal of Lakeview Middle School has been my most challenging and rewarding role yet. This position allows me to interact with hundreds of students on a daily basis and each day brings something new. Please do not hesitate to contact me throughout the school year. I look forward to working with you and your children.
