This research is a qualitative case study. There were five primary schools used as samples obtained through purposive sampling. Every school brought five subjects used informants to obtain the primary data: a principal, a teacher, a school committee, and two students. The methods used were questionnaire, interview, document analysis, and forum group discussion (FGD). The data was analyzed through exploratory research by using interactive model analysis. The results are; (1) Pacitan has much wealth; natural potential, community potential, social and cultural environment and arts; (2) the majority of primary schools in Pacitan use the Javanese language as local content.
