About the district
Hilliard outperforms the rest of Ohio in terms of higher education attainment, median income and poverty rate. The 2010 U.S. Census found that 46.4% of Hilliard residents over 25 years old held undergraduate degrees compared to a 24.5% rate for the state of Ohio. Hilliard had a median income of $84,543 in 2010 compared to $48,071 for Ohio. The poverty rate for Hilliard was 4.8% in 2010 compared to an 14.8% rate for the rest of the state.
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.
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.
The Hilliard School Board consists of five members who are elected at-large to four-year terms. The district reimburses travel expenses for members attending approved conferences and training sessions.
