iPad Distribution Days: We checked out 3253 iPads on August 12 and August 13. Still need to pick up your iPad? Thursday, August 27 at Heritage Middle School is the make-up day. Attendance of a parent/guardian and their student is required. To help avoid congestion and to make the iPad distribution process as efficient as possible, we are asking families go to the One2One site to choose a time slot to pick up their child’s iPad. Other information, such as FAQ, the Loan Agreement and the iPad Handbook, can be found on there as well.

As we start the new school year our passion for growth, our commitment to excellence, is on display. Too often we hear about new programs, compare ourselves to successful programs in other places, or simply talk about the changes we’d like to see in our schools. It is very easy to talk the talk; it is much more challenging to actually walk the walk. It is easy to see the value in progress; it is much more difficult to change behavior . . . to create the experiences.
We are so excited to welcome students back to the Hilliard City Schools. Part of the excitement of the start of school is capturing those first day pictures and friend reunions! Let’s work together to share and tweet all the excitement of the first day of school – Day 1.
Use #HCSD1 to tweet our students, teachers, drivers and parents as we experience the first day of school. Last year we were able to get #HCSD1 trending across the city! We hope to be able to share in your first day excitement after all, it’s the Hilliard Way!

When you start looking at your middle and high school students’ schedule for the 2015-2016 school year you will notice substantial decreases in fees for certain classes. This is due to changes the School Board made to fee schedules adopted during the May 11th Board meeting.
For middle school, 16 fees have been completely removed; these include social studies and some science fees. At the high school level fees have been removed for 49 courses, including world languages, math and performing arts. There are still AP charged course fees. Read More…
