DEI Hiring: Hilliard City Schools


As part of the Hilliard City Schools’ Equity & Diversity 3-Year Strategic Action Plan, the district states that its goal is to “increase the number of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) teachers and teachers from underrepresented groups so that the employees of Hilliard City Schools are representative of the students and families in Hilliard City Schools.”

Listed “Action Steps” include “tuition reimbursement,” “mentoring for HCSD BIPOC students and students from underrepresented groups,” “develop a statement of Hiring that is visible to all that Hilliard is inclusive and values diversity,” and “audit current hiring application & process looking through the lens of diversity & inclusivity.” Evidence of the district’s progress includes an “inclusive hiring statement, questions candidates are asked” and offering “specific sessions for new BIPOC hires.”
