Superintendent’s Listening Tour – March 4 – 7, 2019


Tour dates

The Hilliard City School District is pleased to announce the first Superintendent’s Listening Tour intentionally scheduled to hear our community’s concerns about specific topics of interest. This tour is designed to hear from our constituents about elementary reconfiguration at Britton/Norwich & Alton Darby/Darby Creek and special education services. Dr. John Marschhausen, Superintendent of the Hilliard City Schools, will be joined by members of the Board of Education and administrative team at each event.

The district will utilize Thoughtexchange at each event to collect thoughts, rate input from participants, and share the outcome from each meeting with those unable to attend. We ask that attendees bring a smart phone, laptop, or tablet if possible to each event. There will also be opportunities for verbal comments and dialogue at each session. Each meeting will be focused on the specific topic as advertised. If parents have other issues that they would like to discuss, please either contact your building administrator or submit them to Dr. Marschhausen for consideration at a future Listening Tour.
