Quality Profile : Finances

We must always be mindful of our taxpayer dollars. We have been able to stretch our last levy promise from three years to a full five years. In this Quality Profile video you will hear Treasurer Brian Wilson explain that in doing business better we are able to deliver a high quality, personalized education all while being fiscally responsible.

Student Learning Demonstrated through Video

Students in the fifth grade Bridge Math Course took time at the end of the school year to create projects about their learning. Teacher Jodie Bailey says, “We have played several quiz games, which gave students the opportunity to check their work before sharing it with others. Having incorrect answers on the quiz may be frustrating for some of the competitive players in our class, but it gives them a chance to learn through play.”

Demonstrating year long learning is more than just a test; it’s a chance for students to prove their comprehension through a more rigorous and thought out project. This prepares students for the next steps in life as they become Ready for Tomorrow. You can watch some of the class videos below.

Books on Bikes

Teachers from Darby Creek Elementary implemented Books on Bikes this summer. Jill Merkle, Susie Scott, and Jeff Decker rode bikes through their school’s neighborhoods stopping to visit with students. They gave them books, popsicles, and chatted about their summer reading and adventures. Books on Bikes provides greater access to literature to keep kids reading over the summer months. Many students hopped on their own bikes and joined the teacher’s traveling caravan, reinforcing the importance of staying physically active during the summer as well. 

Academy EDU Student Wins Award

Hedieh Javan, an Academy EDU student, attended the Educator Rising National Conference this summer, at Boston University. It was three action-packed days of networking, learning, competing, and celebrating. During the conference, Hedieh connected and collaborated with other students by attending breakout workshops designed to help students develop teaching skills. During the conference she competed for a national title in the Exploring Administrative Careers. Last spring, Hedieh mentored with Hilliard Superintendent Dr. John Marschhausen. She presented her mentorship with Dr. Marschhausen and won 2nd place! We are extremely proud of Hedieh’s hard work and wish her well as she begins her path to becoming a teacher.
