Students in the Personal Success Network are working to raise money for D.A.S.H. animal rescue through a variety of fundraisers. The senior students in the PSN came up with the idea as a way to fulfill their senior capstone requirement and the initiative is now a collaborative effort with students throughout the program.
To date, over $300 has been raised and a room full of donations has come as a result of their efforts to contribute to the cause. A number of fundraising activities are planned in the upcoming weeks, please stay tuned to our twitter feed @hcsd_ilc for more information.
Students are playing a prominent role in shaping our vision both here at the ILC and throughout the district. Often, districts rely on professionals that have been in the education field who have been in the field 20+ years to design curriculum. Hilliard City Schools is turning to the folks that haven’t even begun to dream about their 20th birthday.

This group most recently met with Mr. Wise, Mr. Morrison, and Secondary Director of Education Mike McDonough to talk about ways they would improve curriculum, instruction, building design, and many other aspects of their school experience. The Voice and Choice Committee will meet once a quarter to ensure that the district vision continues to align with the goals of our young people.
Students from Academy EDU were asked to sit on a panel during IGNITE.

The experience was another example of how our students are helping to shape the experiences that we offer in Hilliard City Schools.
