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!
