National Bullying Prevention Month!

Bullying is one of the most prevalent, debated and analyzed issues of our time. In just about every incident involving a young person acting out, suffering depression or harming themselves, bullying can be identified as a complicating factor—if not the main issue—in their life.

But what does it mean to be bullied or to be a bully? What’s the best way to stop it? What’s the situation in Hillsboro schools?

Those are the questions that were posed to a group of students representing all four of the District’s comprehensive high schools. From their perspective, the issues in Hillsboro weren’t so much the overt bullying—though there was acknowledgement that takes place—but rather the things friends say to friends on a daily basis.

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!
