We are extremely grateful that the Hilliard School Community voted to support the recent school levy. While any levy campaign is a challenge, it was great to share our district message face-to-face with thousands in our community. We are proud of the work we do, passionate about our mission, and optimistic about the future. We are educating the next generation of American leaders. School shouldn’t, it can’t, look like classrooms when we were students. We aren’t preparing students for yesterday or today; we are preparing students for tomorrow. We adults must embrace the discomfort of change. What was “good enough” for us in the 1980’s and 1990’s won’t prepare our young people for success in the 2030’s and 2040’s. We must work together . . . we must embrace this journey of change . . . and own the future together. We are on a path . . . a path to excellence taking one step at a time.
