Superintendent Update

Current Learning Mode

The Hilliard School District is operating in eLearning.

Students will learn from home using Canvas and Zoom. We will use the same schedule for eLearning that was used to start this school year.  You can find the schedules on our eLearning page.  Please check Canvas for more information from your student’s teachers. As a reminder, during eLearning there is no SACC.

Meals will still be provided to students at home during the 2020-2021 school year. Breakfast and Lunch will cover days when students are learning from home for the hybrid, e-learning, and Online Academy modes of instruction. All students are eligible. Students who are eligible for free or reduced-priced meals will receive breakfast and lunch free of charge; all other students who might be interested will be charged the standard price for meals. View details on how our families can pick up meals.

WATCH WEEK

If a change in the Ohio Public Health Advisory Alert System level for Franklin County on a Thursday would result in a shift in a current student instructional mode, the District will implement a “watch week” whereby it will remain in the current instruction mode and evaluate data over the course of the following week.

If data during the “watch week” continues to result in a shift in the current instructional mode, the District will move to that instructional mode the following Monday after the “watch week.”

Less restrictive learning mode

Any movement to a less restrictive learning modality is contingent upon collaboration with Franklin County Public Health (FCPH) and the administration advising FCPH of the District’s intentions and plans to allow for guidance and input from FCPH.
