With the One2One roll out of iPads at the sixth grade buildings this year it was important to have a place students could take their device if they needed support. Both Tharp and Station set up student run Genius Bars. This is the place students can take their device during the day to trouble shoot issues. The students who run the help desk have been trained in basic trouble shooting procedures. If the fix is not so simple they can immediately fill out a service ticket for our technology department. While a device is being serviced the student is loaned a new iPad to keep the learning process going. Putting students in charge of the Genius Bar is giving them an opportunity to be technology leaders in their schools, and gives them another opportunity to be Ready for Tomorrow.
Over the next several weeks we will launch a series of videos defining the Hilliard Way. The Hilliard Way is more than a tag line; it’s how we ensure excellence for our students and community. In these videos different members of our school district and community will share what the Hilliard Way means to them and how this simple philosophy ensures that we are all Ready for Tomorrow.

Fire drills are part of our DNA . . . each month we practice and drill what we do in the event of a fire in our buildings.
Tornado drills a part of our routine . . . each year we take time in the spring preparing for the event of a weather emergency.
Unfortunately we must prepare for more than a fire or a tornado . . . we must prepare and drill for the event of a safety threat. It is the world today; we must be prepared for the worst. Read More…
We are headed into state testing and there is some important information we want to share with parents. First, this video message from our superintendent, Dr. John Marschhausen.
In the past when students took state tests it was administered at one time, in one sitting. Now, the new Ohio State’s Tests are broken into two parts with several units per part. We also want to make you aware that there is an online portion which we will use in some grades. Here is a list of all state assessments and the dates we plan to administer them. At the bottom of this list are some more resources for parents. Read More >>
Please join the Hilliard City Schools Student Support Services Team for a night to connect with other parents/guardians of students with disabilities. This will take place on February 24th from 6:30-8 p.m. at Heritage Middle School.
We will begin in the media center with a brief overview and then break out into sessions you think are best suited for your family. These sessions will discuss transition services; language arts and reading; the IEP process; and, resources and support.
Our goal is to share some information with parents/guardians while helping to connect you with other parents who share similar situations. We want to thank our partners at Hope Education Consulting for working with us on these free sessions.
