No School (District)
This year we will again be using School Messenger to CALL all parents and guardians in our District to notify them of weather delays or cancelations. It’s imperative that your phone number is correct in Home Access. The calls will go to PRIMARY numbers only, so be sure you have the number you want weather calls to go to listed as your primary number.
In order to test this system, we will do a test call this Friday, October 20 at 4pm. This test call will go to all parents and staff. It will also go to community members who are signed up on School Messenger.
We will also still send an email, post on Twitter and Facebook, post on our building web pages and notify local media when we have weather delays or cancelations.
Our Mission Statement says we “will ensure that every student is Ready for Tomorrow.” All too often mission statements are just words on a plaque or papers in a file. In Hilliard, we live our mission statement every day. Our commitment to active partnerships takes (more…)
As part of the upcoming 2017 Hilliard Marching Band Invitational on October 7 the Hilliard Music Boosters will be making a $100 donation to each of the Hilliard Elementary Schools Music programs in support of the arts. They also have a coloring contest under way. Every Hilliard elementary student who does their best to color the Hilliard Marching Band Invitational logo will be given free admission to the Invitational along with a paid adult. The event is at Darby High School. (more…)
The Hilliard City School District is extremely fortunate to have so many parents that are willing to serve our students through numerous support organizations. From our music and athletic boosters, to our PTOs and all of the other organizations that provide for district activities, we are incredibly blessed to have dedicated, talented partners.
One area where the district partners with our support organizations is raising additional dollars to provide supplemental resources to our programs. From purchasing equipment for teams and groups to offsetting costs for student trips, from providing playground equipment to scholarships for families in need, the fundraising efforts of our support groups are instrumental to our district operations.

Our district’s mission is to prepare each student to be “Ready for Tomorrow.” To get the best possible education we know that means we need our students to be in our schools.
In December 2016 the Ohio General Assembly passed House Bill 410 to support a preventative approach to excessive absences and truancy. All districts were given until the beginning of this school year to adopt the new guidelines and have procedures in place to address interventions for students who are excessively absent from school.

Our district has been intentional in language we use to talk about what is important in our school community. We have focused on three core values that we expect from ourselves as educators and from the students in our classrooms. We strive for alignment in both our language and our actions. Yes, our words matter – and yes, our actions matter more. We must not only talk the talk, but we must walk the walk.
In the Hilliard City Schools our three core values are: (more…)
In Hilliard, we use many tools to measure our students’ growth. This week, the Ohio Department of Education will release its annual Local School Report Cards. This is merely one tool, one set of data that is used.
We know there is so much more to a child’s learning and growth than what is measured on this report card, which offers only a limited snapshot on a handful of indicators. Instead, let us look at the ways we are empowering our young people more than ever before.
In Hilliard City Schools, we have: (more…)
The Hilliard City School District continues to create experiences that prepare our students to be Ready for Tomorrow. We know that every student needs foundational academic skills that are the building blocks of success. Hilliard students will continue to learn to read and write – and yes to write on paper and pencil, to type on computers, and to communicate via a myriad of iPad applications. Our students must learn their mathematics facts and processes. Social studies, science, and fine arts are (and will continue to be) the bedrock of academic preparation. (more…)
