Hardin County Schools
Hardin County Schools is offering a community outreach through its Student / Parent Counseling Program.
Hardin County Schools has received notice from the United States Department of Defense Education Activity that it will provide the district with a $1,080,000 grant to help with dropout prevention and credit recovery.
The program stems from the DoDEA $1-million-plus grant that the district received in September 2012. Hardin County Schools, in a joint partnership with The Brook Hospitals offers the six week program multiple times throughout the year. The program currently meets on Thursdays from 5-6 pm at Brown Street Education Center and is open to all families of Hardin County Schools’ students, not just those who may have children that attend Brown Street.
“It is an opportunity for parents who think they might need assistance in providing appropriate guidance and support to their children,” said Robert King, principal at Brown Street Education Center and HCS Drop-Out Prevention Coordinator.
Sessions include aid on smart goal setting, parenting styles, setting boundaries with children, peer pressure, self esteem and self worth, communication and measures of positive discipline.
“We want parents and students to know that help is available to them,” King added. “This program provides a tremendous amount of benefits to families that need support in parent-child relationships. We encourage families to inquire and see if it is a fit for them.”
Parents can contact King at Brown Street Education Center in Vine Grove at (270) 877-2100 or at robert.king@hardin.kyschools.us.
