Eighth Annual Boys’ Conference to be held Nov. 18 

The Department of School Social Work Services will host the Eighth Annual Boys’ Conference on Saturday, Nov. 18.  The conference will be held 8:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m. at Bethel High School and is open to boys in grades six through 12.

The keynote speaker for this year’s conference will be Jay Barnett.

Barnett is the author of the several best-selling books, Finding Our Lost Kings and Queens: Strategies for Empowering Our Future Kings and Queens; Letters to a Young Queen; and Redefining Their Throne.  He also has a new book that will soon be released, Hello King; Claim Your Throne.

With over 10 years of highly skilled and acclaimed mentoring and success stories, public speaking and most importantly real-life in-the-trenches business experience, Barnett’s view is radically different.  He appreciates and shares with his mentees that leadership is a moment-to-moment choice and not about title and position.
 
The following workshops will also be offered:

  • Self-awareness and self-management skills to achieve school and life success
  • Social-awareness and interpersonal skills to establish and maintain positive relationships skills
  • Decision-making skills and responsible behaviors in personal, school, and community contexts

If you are interested in attending the Boys’ Conference, call 757-727-2440 for more information.

SELF-MONITORING

HCS monitors all technology resource activity and requires all employees, students and individuals with access to HCS computer systems and networks to annually read and sign an Acceptable Use Policy.  See School Board Policy IIBEA for Students; School Board Policy GBBB for Employees.

Our continuing goal is for the HCS website to be accessible to individuals with disabilities in compliance with the requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and that statute's implementing regulations at 34 C.F.R. Part 104, and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and that statute's implementing regulations at 28 C.F.R. Part 35.

Good faith efforts are being made to ensure that our website complies with web accessibility standards. In addition to the federal regulations above, we are actively working to conform to level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.
Prior to posting new website content, the HCS Webmaster determines if the proposed content meets the criteria of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).  Periodically the HCS Webmaster checks the website with a recognized website checker such as 508 Checker and WAVE.  If the audit identifies issues of concern or content errors that impede accessibility to any user, the concerns/errors are evaluated and remedied within a six-week period.
