Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[4]


The current Superintendent of Hilliard City Schools is John Marschhausen, who was appointed to the position in July 2013. He previously served as the Superintendent of East Knox Local Schools from 2005 to 2010 and Loveland City Schools from 2010 to 2013.[5]
