School Mission Statement
       Our mission at Harrison County High School is to assist and empower each student
in establishing, achieving, and reaching core content objectives by successfully completing
his or her chosen career cluster. The SBDMC will set high academic standards for all,
regardless of socio-economic status, gender, race, or previous academic performance.


Description of School Planning Process
       The school planning process at Harrison County High School is both intense and
continuous. Eight Site Based Decision Making Council (SBDMC) Committees (School
Climate and Culture, School Space, Technology, Professional Development, CATS
Committee, Budget, Curriculum, and Extra-Curricular Activities) comprised of teachers and
parents, spearhead this process. Each looks at the needs of the entire school community in
light of the best interest to students as well as state standards. These committees meet
throughout the school year and work closely with the faculty department chairs to guide the
high school’s curriculum, learning environment and monitor student achievement.
       Each department chairperson meets with his/her department on a monthly basis. It is
through these meetings, coupled with the SBDMC Committee work, that develop the content
of the Harrison County High School 2010-2011 Comprehensive Plan. Drafts are revised
with administration, the SBDMC and reflect test scores, the needs assessment survey, current
student academic performance and community needs.


School Communication Plan
        Information on the HCHS Comprehensive Plan is provided to parents, students, and
the community through our local newspaper, district newsletter, weekly television broadcast
  (Channel Six), our local radio station, and our district website (www.harrison.k12.ky.us).
The 2010-2011 draft of the Comprehensive Plan will be available upon request until the end
 of the school year. Copies of the final Comprehensive Plan will be made available during
student registration, Parent/Teacher conferences, and regularly scheduled SBDMC meetings.
