Jim Cherry, Kiwanis President with Dr. Harold Olin, Greenfield-Central Superintendent of Schools
Dr. Harold Olin, Greenfield-Central Schools Superintendent, spoke to Kiwanis about his background, Special Education, Digital learning, the new building next to the high school and then answered questions.
Dr. Olin is a 3rd generation educator in Hancock County. His grandfather was a part of Mt. Vernon Schools, his father a part of New Palestine schools and he has been a part of Greenfield-Central for over 16 years.
The Special Education students are all a part of the G-C system now and the transition from Joint Services is complete. Over 900 students have an Individualized Education Program.
Digital learning has been introduced to the high school and junior high. Some digital programs are in the Intermediate schools to familiarize the student with the concepts and process before junior high.
The former Library building at 700 North Broadway was purchased by the schools to house alternate high school education and a preschool. The alternate education program helps students who require special schedules to coordinate with work or vocational education continue their studies. The preschool will add high level preschool capacity to the city.
Dr. Olin answered questions regarding Finance, the teacher shortage, and education for advanced students.
