Parent and Student Volunteers Needed

for the Parent Reunification Drill

Friday, April 8, 2016
9:45 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Hillsboro School District is organizing a Parent Reunification drill to practice district procedures under circumstances where a school may need to be evacuated due to a safety incident. This drill will provide important training to our staff assisting schools to effectively and efficiently reunite students with parents and guardians.


What We Need

  • 400 Student Volunteers High School Students are needed to represent an evacuation from their school site. This is a non-school day and students will need to provide transportation to their home school by 9:45 a.m. on Friday, April 8th. Students will be transported from their high school to the site of our reunification drill on HSD buses and will be returned to their home school by 1:30 p.m. The drill will be videotaped for future District training purposes, including availability on the District website. 
  • 200 Parent Volunteers Adults acting as parents/authorized adults, to arrive at the reunification site to pick up a student. Times are approximately 10:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Detailed information will be provided to volunteers. The drill will be videotaped for future District training purposes, including availability on the District website.

Century & District Report Card

Adequate Yearly Progress The No Child Left Behind Act requires the annual determination of whether schools, districts, and states have made adequate yearly progress (AYP) toward the goal of having all students meet rigorous state academic standards by the 2013-2014 school year. Each year, the performance of all students in the school and district, as well as subgroups of students, is measured against annual performance targets.

Volunteer Information

New Online Volunteer Application: This school year was the first in which Hillsboro School District required an application and background check for all volunteers—an important step in ensuring the safety of our students. We truly appreciate the time each of our volunteers took to go through the required steps.

Now, however, the District must humbly ask volunteers to repeat this process for good reason—the District is pleased to announce its new completely automated system for managing volunteers. The current manual process was extremely time intensive, both for schools and the Human Resources department. The online system is quick and efficient, returning background check results and populating them to a database that can be checked by staff within minutes, allowing volunteers to begin helping our schools and students right away.

Please complete the application as soon as possible—the District will not be charged for any background checks completed by October 1, 2011. Please note that all interested patrons are asked to complete the application even if they filled out paperwork and were cleared this school year. Thank you very much for your assistance and your interest in helping our schools!
