When a child graduates from Warren County, what characteristics are most valuable to their success? By the time they are 25, what will be true of Warren County graduates? These are the types of questions the Warren County Board of Education wants you to answer at their upcoming fall community forum. Join the Board of Education and other community partners as they meet virtually on October 27th at 6 pm to listen to parents, students, and other community members as they discuss what the community needs and wants to see from Warren County Schools moving forward. This forum is not about COVID-19 and pandemic-related concerns. Instead, it is about our vision for the future of Warren County Schools. Registration is required.

February 21, 2020 was a scheduled half day for students with an afternoon work session for staff. Due to inclement weather, all schools in the district were closed that day. Banked hours will be used to make up the missed student hours on February 21, 2020. Principals are requested to inform staff, students, and parents how the missed student hours will be made up.
