If you’re doing something just because it’s always been done that way, you may be missing an opportunity to do it better.

If you’re doing something just because it’s always been done that way, you may be missing an opportunity to do it better. – Bill Parcells
One of our three values in the Hilliard City School District is our Passion for Growth. We are committed to a journey that includes being better today than we were yesterday. We live a growth mindset . . . we are on the path to being elite and it takes great work.
Getting better doesn’t mean abandoning traditions or time-tested strategies. Getting better, living a growth mindset must include honest evaluation and reflection. It must include intentionally questioning, “It’s always been done that way” and making purposeful decisions.
Yes, we live in a time of great change. Yes, we must continue to evolve our practices. Yes, we do what we do very well and some things won’t change. For me, it’s about finding those opportunities to do better and celebrating what we already do exceptionally well
