The presentation was recorded during the live community zoom session on July 7th at 6:30pm.

Superintendent, John Marschhausen on July 7th, shared the Hilliard City School District’s Restart Plan with our staff and community. This plan represents months of work by a variety of teams; all focused on preparing for the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year.

The plan is intended to provide an overview of the three educational delivery scenarios and a fully online option that we are prepared for as a district:

  • All-In Plan: Fully in-person education
  • Hybrid Plan: A combination of in-person and online education
  • eLearning 2.0: Online education
  • Online Academy: Fully online education

The plan also outlines the health and safety measures that will be put in place to deliver in-person learning.

How we reopen in the fall will depend on requirements and guidance from Governor DeWine, the Ohio Department of Health, the Ohio Department of Education, and the Franklin County Health Department.

Our goal for the 2020-2021 school year is to provide in-person instruction for our students as much as possible. In an effort to be overly prepared, the district has three plans ready to go. We hope you will join Dr. Marschhausen as he announces these plans and takes questions.
