Board Approves Reduction List Should November Levy Fail

“With 1,000 new students expected over the next five years, funding from the November 8 levy is critical if we want to maintain the excellent work happening in our schools,” stated Board President Heather Keck. “Without additional funds, we will have no choice but to cut valuable teachers and programs that are important to our success.” Read More

The DC Trail

Darby Creek is proud of a new bike trail they created this past school year. It’s a shared trail designed for walkers, hikers, and bike riders.

During school hours the Trail will be for students to use during recess periods and physical education classes. Similar to other outdoor spaces, like playgrounds and tracks in the Hilliard City School District, the trail will be open after school hours and on weekends for families and the community to use.
