Parents/Guardians Input Asked To Improve Student Life

The Kenton City Schools, in collaboration with the Ohio State University College of Social Work, and the Community and Youth Collaborative Institute (CAYCI) are again administering the School Experience Survey for the 2016-2017 school year. This survey is important for us to obtain valuable feedback from our students, teachers, and you, the parent and/or caregiver. We value your opinion, and will be using this information to enhance the educational experience for our staff, our community, and most importantly, our students!

If you are a parent or a caregiver with a child attending any of our schools, we are asking for you to give 10-15 minutes of your time to complete the survey online by clicking here. This survey will be available through December 21st.

Screenagers Program Coming to Kenton

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.

Join our Hardin County schools in screening this timely new film.  The event will be held at the Kenton Theatre at 6:30 on Monday, November 14.  Doors open at 6pm. Contact Jennifer Rogers at Kenton City Schools with any questions.  Sponsored by Quest Federal Credit Union.
