Superintendent's Corner

About Our District

Welcome to Hardin-Central C-2 School District. Over the years, our district has combined with several neighboring schools to form the district we are today. Because of this, we are proud of our “Strength in Numbers.”

Superintendent’s Corner

Hardin-Central C2        


At the Hardin-Central School District, we set and support high expectations for all students in our learning environments. Those high expectations also support emotional growth and stability.  From our Parents-As-Teachers Program and Preschool Program to College-and-Career Readiness for juniors and seniors, we see our students performing well across various local and state measures. These programs foster growth in all areas.  We are proud of our rapid increase in academic performance in state assessments (MAP and End-of-Course Exams) and Annual Performance Rating the last three years, and we look to grow in the future by increasing district technology resources and continuing to update our curriculum to meet and go beyond state standards.

Our hardworking instructional staff is dedicated to meeting each child’s academic, social and emotional needs…in and out of the classroom.  Our School Board and district leadership are committed to providing each school with the necessary resources to ensure this success. The broad array of co- and extracurricular activities offered brings the possibility to new experiences for everyone.   Our goals at Hardin-Central include: High Focus on student learning and achievement, Student Friendly Learning Environment, Student Safety, Communication with Stakeholders and Fiscal Solvency. Additionally, we have a strong partnership with our entire Hardin-Central community that echoes our goals throughout our district.  Parents, community members, and alumni donate their time, talents and financial resources to our school, and we greatly appreciate those efforts. 

As many of you are already aware, we have made several improvements and updates within our district in just the last two years.  In that time, we have outfitted our elementary classrooms with short-throw projectors and purchased interactive multimedia reading curriculum for Kindergarten through 6th Grade.  We are currently undertaking a three-year project to refurbish each classroom in our district with new equipment, furniture, and storage to improve student performance.  We have added two buses to our transportation fleet, and we have replaced our aging stage curtains to outfit our gymnasium.  The second phase of our roofing project for our buildings was completed on schedule early this fall, and we have made plans to take on more aggressive renovations to our buildings this spring.  We have tripled our budget for textbooks and learner resources compared to just three years ago, and we have expanded our Dual Credit on-line class offerings with State Fair Community College to coincide with our new district computer lab.  Plans are in the works to obtain Chrome Book tablets for the elementary classes as well as doing some refurbishment of some of our athletic facilities. 

I encourage you to take a little time and explore our district website and discover the bounty of information and resources we have made available for our public. 

Many of you also know that we have been approached by the Norborne School District to consider a consolidation proposal, and our consolidation research committee will meet Monday, Nov. 20, at 7 p.m. and at Hardin-Central for its next session, and January 22 at Norborne for the following meeting.   The Consolidation Research Committee Agenda is available on both district’s websites. I invite members of the community to attend the session to listen first-hand to the discussion as committee members proceed with the process.

It is indeed exciting times for the Hardin-Central School District.  I look forward to many more opportunities for student growth and achievement, and as always, am honored to lead such a proud, community supported district.
