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.

In Hilliard, teacher professional development and online materials will target special education, gifted and ELL students in all elementary buildings.
