During a special board meeting, the Harrison County Board of Education voted to use stimulus money to hire an additional middle school teacher and an additional high school teacher.

According to assistant superintendent DeeGee Fischer on Tuesday afternoon, the teaching position at the middle school will be for an eighth grade social studies teacher. The position at the high school will be for a special education teacher.

Board members also voted to fund elementary academic coaches and add parking spots across from the middle school for the new athletic facility.

Due to the district administrators’ attendance at the Kentucky Association of School Administrators conference last week  in Louisville, July’s school board meeting will be held this Friday at 7 p.m. at the Community Education Center.
