Community and School Partnership Enhances Safety for All

Hilliard City Council is currently reviewing a new ordinance that allows the Norwich Township Fire Department to determine fire lanes for all public spaces in the city limits. It also enhances the Hilliard Division of Police ability to enforce no stopping, standing or parking in fire lanes. This ensures that the Norwich Township Fire Department has appropriate access to all facilities when needed.

“This is a city-wide concern, but we are thrilled to be partnering with the Hilliard City Schools on this initiative,” said Mayor Don Schonhardt. “We want to make sure that all students, staff and visitors in each of our schools and across our community are safe.” Read More

Hilliard Bradley High School Students Mock Courtroom

As an introduction to the play Inherit the Wind, parent Stan Willis volunteered his day to set up a mock courtroom for English 10 students at Hilliard Bradley High School. He encouraged students to serve as each of the actors in the trial and then explained their roles. He then helped students understand the trial process and courtroom dialogue. Combining English curriculum with social studies patterns of social interactions and cultural diversity in the United States, he also discussed the First Amendment and the Constitutionality of the Butler Act which is the basis for the play. There was time for students to ask questions, many surrounding the day to day routine of being a trial lawyer. This unique collaboration between students, parents and staff is one way Hilliard City Schools is working to foster authentic learning experiences for every student.

In addition to gaining traction and acquiring professional information about the district, the superintendent’s family is creating a new home and learning a new community. Read More

Hilliard Tharp’s Darby Creek Field Days

The student teams at Hilliard Tharp are investigating the health of the Darby Creek System. In preparation for a trip to the creek, the students have been discussing potential dangers to the system and how they can prevent the threats from harming the system. The Ohio E.P.A is counting on accurate data from the sixth graders. They are specifically looking for macroinvertebrates living in the creek. The teams will spend several days working to identify the macroinvertebrates to ensure they draw an accurate conclusion. This falls in line with the sixth grade science curriculum as students conduct investigations then apply math skills to evaluate and analyze data. After each team analyzes all data, they then send water quality assessments to the Ohio E.P.A.
