We often get asked how we communicate with our school community now that we do not send home lots of flyers and papers on Fridays. Below is an info-graphic we hope will help answer any questions you may have!
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.
Our vision is aligned with our purpose. Unlike other places, we aren’t just talking the talk. Our culture and behavior is evident in our work. To quote one of the Apple Executives, “You guys just breathe this stuff.”
Yes . . . we breathe it because it is our core. Our hearts and minds are aligned. We embrace innovation and we have a true passion for growth.
Please join Superintendent John Marschhausen for coffee during one of his upcoming Coffee Connections. These are informal events where community members can stop by, grab a cup of coffee and chat with the Superintendent. Please make plans to attend one of these.
From time to time Superintendent John Marschhausen is asked similar questions from different members of the community. In an effort to share the answers with everyone he puts the questions here with his candid responses.
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?
First of all, and I can’t be any more direct, there are no mandatory fundraisers. If you feel your child is being pressured into selling items or asking for money, please contact your school’s principal. We don’t force student participation in fundraising activities. (more…)
As a follow up to the School Start Time Task Force’s work last spring, the Board of Education approved a resolution in support of later school start times for Elementary and Middle School students. We know this will cause changes for our families, and we wanted to give you as much time as possible to make any necessary adjustments to your schedules.
