The Hardin County Board of Education voted unanimously yesterday night to accept the merger agreement that would bring students from West Point Independent School into the Hardin County School district. The merger will come into effect on July 1st after the agreement is checked and approved by the Kentucky Department of Education. West Point’s preschool and kindergarten students will attend North Park Elementary School, 1st through 5th grade students will attend Vine Grove Elementary School, 6th, 7th and 8th grade students will attend JT Alton Middle School, and students entering 9th grade will attend North Hardin High School. West Point students who attend Elizabethtown High School may continue to do so through their individual graduation date. There will be times scheduled for students and families who live in West Point to attend events at each school, welcoming them to the district.
