First Meeting

Announcing the first Public Meeting of!
By Mark Morscher

On this blog, we have learned over the past months that our passionate online-community has so much to offer each other in experience, perspective and ideas regarding Hilliard City Schools and the educational processes and funding. While it was great that our students got a temporary reprieve with the passing of the last levy, many of us have recognized it is time to take our inertia and the collective power of this online community and do what we can to affect change in the future. In this spirit, will be having its first public gathering:

Monday, December 1
Iacano's, Cemetery Rd.

This will afford us a great opportunity to:

  • Enjoy some pizza!
  • Put faces to the names!
  • Have Paul present an integrated view of school funding history, issues and outlook
  • Open the floor to questions and answers to drive more thorough and collaborative discussion
  • Discuss the future of and how we want to interface with the community and school district
  • Next steps for moving forward

Feel free to pass the word onto friends and other interested parties. This is not a formal meeting, and is not being coordinated with school officials, although members of the Administration, Board and Staff are more than welcome to participate. We hope this presents an opportunity to gather and decide how we can address our individual concerns as a coordinated group.

No need to RSVP. Contact Mark Morscher ( if you have further questions.


  1. I'm looking forward to putting some names to faces - hope to see some of you at the meeting. I know we have all agreed to disagree at times and being able to verbalize face to face should be so much better than trying to communicate through the blog, although there is nothing wrong with that either!

  2. Thanks to all who came to the meeting last night. I hope the things we talked about were informative, and are helping you 'connect the dots.' If so, please pass the word on to your friends and neighbors in the school district.

    And thanks to Mark for being the organizer.

    I'm looking forward to our next meeting in January!


  3. It was great to see everyone last night and see that everyone is interested in taking this group beyond the Blog. To that end, I have reserved the Hilliard Library Meeting Room for Tuesday, January 6th at 6:30pm for our next meeting.

    More details on the agenda and goals of the meeting as I digest the excellent feedback from yesterday's meeting. In the meantime, put it on your calendars and spread the word!
