ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - When most new principals are hired, they walk into a position that comes with an existing student body, staff and building. If it's a new school, they at least have an existing school model with which to work.
Dan Robbins has none of those things.
Robbins is principal of the Early College and Career Center in Hardin County Schools. Scheduled to open in August, the school will offer classes within six career pathways and college credit-bearing courses for students enrolled in the three HCS high schools. Students will spend half of their school day at the center.
Until August when students begin entering the brand-new building, next to Elizabethtown Community and Technical College, Robbins has a cubicle in the HCS Central Office.
