Monthly Board Meetings

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.

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.
