The School-Age Child Care Program (SACC) and the After Class Enrichment Program (ACE) were established by the Hilliard City School District in response to the need for quality, affordable care. The Programs provides a Child Care Solution which is a comfortable choice for families. SACC and ACE are designed to meet the child’s social, emotional and physical needs. Based upon play and social experience, the program will complement, not imitate the school day.
Registration for next school year begins May 1, 2018. Please know that there is a lottery system for some of our schools as registration numbers grow. Please check the S.A.C.C. web page for details and registration forms.
The Hilliard City School District has formed a Dyslexia Advisory Committee. This group, under the leadership of Mrs. Vicky Clark, Director of Elementary Curriculum, will engage with parents and parent organizations interested in Hilliard’s reading programs. Board of Education President Lisa Whiting is the Board’s Representative.
One action this committee found important was to host parent meetings to discuss our Dyslexia Commitment Plan. This parent meeting will take place on May 2 at 6:30pm at Tharp Sixth Grade School. This will give all our parents an opportunity to hear the District’s plans.
Hilliard has been well served by proactively collaborating with parents and key constituents. The Power of Team extends beyond the district walls; it includes families and the community. Our Dyslexia Advisory Committee will continue to meet and identify specific areas of focus, key short and long-term goals, and desired outcomes from our work together. We pledge to continue to share the group’s findings and action steps.
While our families are enjoying some time away from school over spring break, our Operations Department is still hard at work. Here are just some of the projects our team is completing this week.
- Memorial Middle School: Continue new build
- Weaver: Waterline repair
- Davidson: Waterline repair
- Ridgewood: Begin the roofing project
- Darby: Wall patching
- Memorial: Removing vacant book shelves from the media center
- Various Buildings: Cooling tower maintenance
- Davidson: Parking lot – patch potholes
- Avery: Parking lot – patch potholes
- Darby: Install exhaust in stadium concession stand
- Transportation: We are conducting a third party efficiency audit of our bus routes to insure we are getting the most out of our transportation resources
The goal of the Hilliard City Schools Operations Department is to provide a warm, safe and dry learning and working environment for all students, teachers and staff. In 2006 our community supported a Permanent Improvement levy that generates approximately $4.6 million dollars annually. This can only be used for repairs, improvements to facilities and grounds, and capital assets with a useful life of five years or more. This is a tremendous resource for our District, but as you can see from the list above the cost to protect and preserve the quality of our buildings remains high.
