Math Matters: Transforming Math Education for 21st Century Success

Hilliard City Schools is one of nine districts taking part in a grant to use an online math tool to personalize instruction for our students and provide immediate feedback for our teachers. This 7.7 million dollar grant was awarded through the Straight A Fund from the State of Ohio. The new program will deepen problem solving and reasoning skills in students. In Hilliard, teacher professional development and online materials will target special education, gifted and ELL students in all elementary buildings. This will create a blended learning experience for students with a mix of online tools and high quality face to face instruction. The grant will also provide funds for 30 or more additional iPad minis for every building.

International Dot Day

The students at Alton Darby Elementary and Darby Creek Elementary became one giant human dot for International Dot Day. It was created as an extension to Peter H. Reynolds book, The Dot. The symbolism of creating this dot represents ADE and DCR communities coming together to make our mark on the world. Norwich Elementary students have been decorating dots for International Dot Day. The book centers around one child making his own mark on the world. The Norwich students have connected to the text by writing about ways they can make their own mark. The students also held a town hall meeting to discuss the book. This brought many different perspectives, from all ages. They will continue this learning by sharing their thinking with classes at Hoffman Trails Elementary by communicating through Skype.

Hilliard City Schools Releases First Quality Profile to Community

Hilliard City Schools released its first Quality Profile (QP) to the community today. The QP shares not only how Hilliard Schools is performing in six key areas, it also shares the district’s goals for improvement and is being mailed to every household in the community.

“We wanted to engage with our community in a more meaningful way,” said Superintendent John Marschhausen, Ph.D. “A Hilliard Schools education goes well beyond a state mandated test and our community deserves to know about the progress we’ve made, where we still need to improve and our goals for the future.” Read More
