District provides good value to taxpayers and high quality education for students
Hilliard City Schools’ students are ranked number one for academic growth and among the top 11 percent for academic achievement of all school districts in Ohio. The rankings are part of a new state law related to the Ohio Department of Education’s (ODE) Local Report Cards (LRC) and includes not only every public school district in the state, but also every community and STEM school as well. The academic growth is measured through the Value-Added (VA) component of the LRC and academic achievement relates to the Performance Index (PI) calculation.
“Our teachers, support staff and administrators work incredibly hard to ensure student success on a daily basis,” said Superintendent Dale A. McVey. “We are thrilled to be recognized among the elite school districts in Ohio, but also realize that these rankings don’t provide the full picture of our quality educational opportunities for students. Our mission is to empower graduates to thrive in the 21st century and that is where our focus will continue to be.” Read More
