The VISION of the in-district Online Learning Program is to offer revolutionary courses taught through collaborative and unique learning environments in order for Hilliard City Schools to be recognized as a leader in online academic excellence and success rates.
Online Learning in Hilliard is Different.
Different is what makes our online program so successful.
Quality. Every single one of our online courses was written by district teachers. The courses align with what is taught in the classrooms and are designed to be engaging for students.
Flexibility. All of our courses offer students flexibility and choices surrounding when and how they learn. Most offer options for students to choose between self-directed learning options and more traditional lessons and activities.
Revolutionary. And like all great teachers, our teachers are constantly striving to make their courses the best that they can be. They collaborate with other teachers. They learn about online best and innovative practices and how to implement them. They keep connected with the latest tools and resources available for their students. From semester to semester, Hilliard’s online courses are in a constant state of revision and improvement in order to remain revolutionary.
Teachers. But the biggest thing that makes Hilliard’s online program different is the teachers. We have an incredibly dedicated team of teachers. They are the reason why our program has a annually passage rate consistently higher than 90%. Our online teachers dedicate themselves to their students. They do whatever it takes to make sure their students are successful. That’s not the case for all online teachers. But that’s how we do it in Hilliard.
Dedication. What does that mean, exactly? Sometimes that means a phone call home. Sometimes it’s one, two, or ten face-to-face meetings. Sometimes it’s creating on-the-fly videos to answer questions. And, truthfully, sometimes it’s means hounding those students (and even their parents) until they “get it.” And “get it” they do. We make sure of it. Sometimes, our students do fail. They fail tests. They fail assignments. Then they go back and learn it. They do it again. And then… they don’t fail! They learn. They pass. They earn credits. And, the best part, they succeed.
