  • Attention Graduating Seniors, Families, and Community Members.
    The Hillsboro High School graduation ceremony scheduled for this Friday has been postponed until Sunday, May 31 at 8:00 p.m.due to the rain in the weather forecast. This postponement is necessary to ensure the integrity of the event and to protect the equipment and grounds, which will require 2 dry days. We look forward to seeing you all on Sunday evening.

    To our community members, HCUSD 3 thanks you for the tremendous support you have shown the students and school during this challenging time. We would like to ask your assistance again in helping us manage the logistics of this important ceremony by avoiding the area around the school grounds during the event. This will reduce traffic and help us get all of the participants and their families safely parked. We invite you to experience the entire event live by tuning in on the HCUSD Facebook page. Thank you!

    2019-2020 Hillsboro Community School District No. 3 Calendar



    Hillsboro Community School District No. 3 is committed to creating a great place for students to learn, teachers to teach, staff to work, and for parents to send their children to receive a great education. To build on this commitment, the leadership of the school district gathers and analyzes data on essential goals and measures, including Parent Satisfaction.

    The Parent Satisfaction Survey was administered to all parents/caregivers with a child in the school district to assess the level of satisfaction parents have with their child’s school. Collecting feedback from parents/caregivers allows leaders to recognize the good work that many school leaders, teachers, and staff accomplish every day, and to identify gaps in performance that should be addressed. Thank you to the parents/caregivers who took the time to complete the survey.

    The Hillsboro CUSD3 has undertaken a strategic planning initiative to help chart a course for the future of the district.  This strategic plan will help us focus and prioritize improvement efforts and help ensure that we are all working together in a cohesive manner. The strategic plan will also serve as a tool to communicate our goals to all stakeholders. This plan is the result of a six month process that began in January when the District invited 14 stakeholder groups to participate in focus group sessions to provide valuable insight and information regarding the future expectations and challenges of the school district.

    While it is not possible for the District to completely eliminate the risks of exposure to allergens when students come to school, a cooperative effort among students' families, staff members, and students helps the District reduce these risks and provide accommodations and proper treatment for allergic reactions.
