Harlan is launching a new mobile app that helps students, parents, and community members know what is happening on campus, right from their phones. We know that families are using smartphones as a primary means to communicate. That’s why we’ve created an app that is custom-built for mobile. On the app, you can find documents, contact information for staff, and event information. You can download the app for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
In case you missed it, peep 👀 the billboard on the bypass. 84% of the 2021 senior class graduates with dual credit hours, some with as many as 30+! #excellenceineducation #familyofdragons

Last week 16 students from Harlan Independent participated in the Washington Institute for Leading and Learning (WILL), sponsored by Kentucky Educational Development Corporation (KEDC) and the National Council for History Education (NCHE). Led by Harlan High School Social Studies teacher, Megan Freyer, students particpated in Zoom meetings with institutions and individuals from Washington D.C. pertaining to our nation's history: virtual tours of Mt. Vernon and Monticello, introductions to Ford's Theater and the National Archives and discussions with Kentucky Lt. Governor Jacqueline Coleman and author/historian Erica Armstrong Dunbar. The purpose of the program was to provide an opportunity to enhance student knowledge of our nation’s past so that they have the background to emerge as young leaders in our democracy. #familyofdragons #youngleaders
