The purpose of each monthly meeting will be to conduct the regular Board business." The Board agenda and packet will be posted the Friday afternoon prior to the upcoming Board meeting.


Work Sessions and Special Meetings

Board Meeting Agenda Information
Board meeting agendas are available on the District website on Fridays prior to the scheduled board meetings - and they are available to view at all the District's schools 24 hours prior to the scheduled meetings. Board agendas are divided into three major categories: Consent, Action and Reports, which are outlined as follows:

1.     Consent Agenda consists of routine items such as previous Board minutes, routine personnel actions, and routine financial transactions.

2.     Action Items are scheduled for a board vote and cover many topics. An opportunity for board discussion is allotted prior to final action.

3.     Reports/Information Only Items are presented for the Board's information. The Board may engage in discussion and ask questions of the presenter, but no formal action is taken.

Recognition and Presentations

Recognizing students, staff and community members for their accomplishments and contributions to the Hillsboro School District is a priority of the School Board. Recognitions and/or presentations are scheduled throughout the year to acknowledge the work of students, staff and the community - and to showcase programs, events, and student activities.


Join a Committee of the Board

There are two standing formal committees of the Board: the Budget Committee and the Citizens Curriculum Advisory Committee.


The Budget Committee includes the Board of Directors and seven volunteer citizens who are appointed to serve three-year terms.  Committee members must be registered voters living within the boundaries of the Hillsboro School District, and cannot be employees, officers, or agents of the District.  Membership on the Budget Committee offers a unique opportunity to contribute to an essential aspect of District operations, while learning about the District's budget development process and the factors involved in making school district budget decisions.  Budget Committee activities are typically concentrated in the months of January-May, as the District begins to create its budget for the following school year.  For additional information, please contact Val Bokma, assistant to the Board of Directors (bokmav@hsd.k12.or.us or 503-844-1500).
