As of today, there are now only 2 school districts within Hardin County. Effective today, West Point Independent Schools has merged with Hardin County Schools. The merger, which has been ongoing for over a year, was chosen as the best option for the fledgling school district after a state audit of the school last year.
At the last board meeting, former board chairman Eddie Moore was enthusiastic about the opportunities he said students will now have at Hardin County. As part of the merger, HCS will take on the former district’s property and assets, including the school building located in West Point.
