The 2022-2023 State of Our Schools

We are excited to share with you this special edition #IHPromise newsletter as a way to present to you through a multimedia approach the State of Our Schools.

I’m pleased to begin by assuring you that our financial outlook is stable, and our focus is to continue our history of being responsible stewards of the investment you make in our schools. This commitment was evidenced recently through the implementation of an Energy Savings Program, which guarantees more than $150,000 in savings annually; $300,000 in Ohio K-12 School Safety Grants Awarded for construction; $15,000 in grants for science, technology, engineering, and math through the Ohio STEM Learning Network STEM Classroom Grant program; and quick action by our Board of Education to lock in a long-term loan at 3.75 percent to cover potential construction overages due to inflation.

Ours is a story of fiscal responsibility without compromising the excellence you expect and deserve.

The Indian Hill School District earned a Aaa credit rating; we are one of an elite number of school districts – only two others in Ohio – with the Aaa rating.

This year, we are seeing another trend that makes us smile – increased enrollment. We want our community to use our schools, and this year we have invested time examining an important question: Why Indian Hill?

Within our special State of Our Schools video presentation, we are sharing the stage so you can hear the answer to that question directly. We feature our staff, our parents, and we kick it all off by placing the stars of our show on center stage – our students.

Indian Hill High School No. 1 in Ohio; a “BEST Communities” for music education nationally; nationally recognized STEM learning; and a Top Workplace for our world-class faculty and staff – this is what our #IHPromise in action looks like.

Welcome to the State of Our Schools – there’s never been a better time to be BRAVE!

In service to our children,

Kirk Koennecke
Indian Hill School District
