Emilio Umeoka the Vice President of Sales for Apple Education recently brought a team to visit our District and learn from our teachers and students. Members of their team commented on the strength of the Hilliard culture. They were excited to see the passion, energy and engagement of students and staff.

My son is a high school athlete. Our neighbor’s kids are in the band and always selling things and asking for money. What is the district’s position on mandatory fundraisers?
