For the second straight year, the Ohio Department of Education has awarded the Hilliard City School District its highest rating on its annual report card for the 2008-09 school year. Hilliard also boosted its Performance Index to 101.5 (maximum 120), its highest number since ODE began determining ratings in the late 1990's.
The ninth largest school district in the state of Ohio, Hilliard met 29 out of 30 state "indicators" and also met goals for Annual Yearly Progress and received a +/Above grade for the Value Added Measure. All 21 district schools showed a Performance Index Score of 94 or more.
The report card confirms why the Hilliard School District (which does extend beyond the city of Hilliard itself) has long attracted home buyers, and perhaps even more so in this year of the $8,000 first-time buyer tax credit.
