The Hilliard City School District formed the Education Advisory Committee in early 2014. This committee, comprised of approximately two-dozen parents, community members and employees, provides our team great conversation about the direction of the district.
One of the first conversations of the Education Advisory Committee was centered on our communications strategies and plans. Our district is proud of our communications efforts and eager to continually seek ways to improve our strategies. Ultimately, our communications goals are ever-changing . . . we continue to refine and reinvent our plans. Our website serves as a “home base” for communications and is a springboard for other opportunities. Read More

Students in the Hilliard Free Lunch Summer Camp for Kids program have the opportunity to take their entrepreneurial spirit to the next level. In 2012 a group of 16 students who were bored at camp decided they wanted to start their own restaurant. Today, Taco Bell, Jr. is not only serving community members a great lunch, but also providing an opportunity for students to manage the restaurant including the customer service, menu, food, entertainment and decorations. It gives students the chance to dream big and work hard while also practicing literacy, math and communication skills during the summer months.
Taco Bell, Jr. will open its doors for the final time this year at 1 p.m. on Friday, July 25. The restaurant is located at the Hilliard Church of Christ, 4300 Avery Road in Hilliard. The Hilliard Free Lunch Summer Camp for Kids is operated by Serving Our Neighbors (SON) Ministries. Their mission is to bring hope to children and families in need in the Hilliard Community. To learn more about their programs or how to support the summer camp, visit www.son-ministries.org.
