It all started in the fall of 2007 at East Hardin Middle School.
That's when a Truancy Diversion Program was launched by Family Court Judge M. Brent Hall to help curb attendance problems among local students. In two short years, TDP now has spread throughout the five middle schools in the Hardin County Schools system.
The success that was found at East Hardin and then last year at West Hardin, is expected to follow suit now that the program is at Bluegrass, J.T. Alton and Radcliff middle schools.
