The Hackett School District is dedicated to supporting and celebrating our military students and families, current and Veteran. There are approximately 21 military students enrolled in the Hackett School District. We appreciate the sacrifices our families make each and every day. The district is committed to serving students of our military heroes and supporting them both emotionally and academically.
Each year, the Hackett School District is proud to honor our military heroes during Veterans Day events recognizing the sacrifices made by our active and former military community members.
Our district liaison is Tura Bailey who is available to provide any necessary support to our military families. This assistance may include but not limited to: dealing with a deployed parent, requesting a schedule change, updating enrollment information, advising students regarding graduation requirements and scholarship information, and advising students regarding sports and extracurricular activities. We know military families make a huge sacrifice to protect our freedoms, we want to be a source of help and assistance to these families and strive to help them in any way.
