Cultivating a learning-centered culture doesn’t stop with our students in the classroom within the Indian Hill School District. Each year, the District invites parents and community members to attend a specially developed series of informational sessions relating to student life, both in school and out of school. As part of the Indian Hill School District Speaker Series, guest speakers share information to help foster collaboration to learn about relevant topics. 

“Engaging our stakeholders in a dynamic way is a core strategic focus area for the District within our plan for transformational excellence, and we believe these sessions will be of value to all members of our Brave family,” said Dr. Melissa Stewart, Assistant Superintendent for Teaching and Learning.

The Indian Hill School District Speaker Series agenda for the 2018-2019 school year includes:
