Updates Regarding Weather

At the March 10 board meeting, the board of education approved a modification to the school day to get students out before graduation.   Starting MARCH 31, students will be in class an extra 30 minutes each day until May 19.  Doing this will give us three days of school waivered from the state.  Because of this change, our school year will end officially Tuesday, June 4th. Should more inclement weather occur, we will revisit and update the changes as soon as possible.

Please be assured that I know this plan may cause conflicts for some and appreciate your flexibility and cooperation with this extremely unusual situation. In addition, please be advised that in the event additional inclement weather continues, the corporation may need to add an additional hour to other days in the future. You will be notified if this occurs. As always, please call my office at (260) 488-2513 should you have any questions or concerns.



Sincerely,

Jon Willman

Superintendent of Schools

A Message from the Superintendent

Welcome to the Hamilton Community Schools web site. 

We hope you will find the information contained in our website to be helpful and informative.  

Hamilton Community Schools is proud of our tradition of academic excellence. We continue to hold the belief as I know our parents do - that we are one of the highest performing schools in the area. The current grading system utilized by the state is very confusing and lacks transparency and does not truly reflect this belief. For example, the state of Indiana rated HCS as a letter grade of C, for the 2012-13 school year. This is not indicative of our overall performance as both the Elementary and Jr./Sr. High School had achievement scores of B or better. However Growth Model data the state currently utilizes lowered our ranking by one letter grade. This was due to a small number of students that failed to show adequate progress according to the state. This is one reason I support the current efforts of the Indiana Department of Education to make significant changes to our accountability model. You can be assured that HCS will continue to evaluate data to drive decisions as they relate to student achievement. We are always looking at opportunities to improve. We hope in the future that the data we receive from the state is more helpful in this manner.

Finally, due to the severe winter weather we have had numerous delays and cancelations. Please continue to check the corporation website and Facebook pages for updates to the school calendar. February is predicted to continue to supply Northeast Indiana with more snow and cold temperatures. The safety of our students will be the driving factor if a delay or cancelation is called.

To learn more about Hamilton Community Schools, please come in for a visit.  You may call our K-12 office at 260-488-2161 to schedule an appointment.
