Each year during our Convocation Celebration three students, who have graduated from Hilliard City Schools, return to honor three of our staff members.

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.

This summer a team of our elementary school math coaches and teachers redesigned the course of study for elementary math. This will help our teachers by organizing resources and providing a more direct plan. The curriculum team will work with each elementary school to introduce the newly developed units, including key instructional points for each grade level. Also newly designed assessments that will be the same throughout the district will be rolled out. The way we teach math is changing, we need students to be problem solvers and thinkers and not just good at memorizing formulas. Preparing students to be Ready for Tomorrow means constantly reevaluating and redeveloping our curriculum to prove the most personalized education possible.
