Ever since the Hillsboro School District of today came to be
after unification in 1996, we have been involved in long-range planning
efforts. This includes everything from the strategic acquisition of
property for future school sites, commissioning studies on forecasted
population growth, inventorying all of our schools and buildings to determine
our high-priority maintenance needs, and so on.
The District’s Long-Range Planning Committee is led by Chief
Financial Officer Adam Stewart and is composed of other staff members
(representing Technology Services, the Business Office, Facilities, and
Communications), Board members, community members, representatives from the
City of Hillsboro and Washington County, and representatives from the
architectural and real estate companies we work with. Those meetings are
often also attended by representatives from surrounding districts who want to
learn from our process.
The current Committee was formed at the conclusion of the District’s
last construction bond was passed in 2006. That bond allowed for the
construction of three new and one replacement elementary school: Quatama,
Lincoln Street, Free Orchards, and Rosedale; and one replacement middle school:
South Meadows. It also allowed for the expansion of our other three
middle schools (Brown, Evergreen, and Poynter), as well as the completion of
several smaller projects at our other schools.
Recent Committee work has focused on creating a
comprehensive list of District facility needs (roofing, asphalt and concrete,
mechanical systems, seismic, safety, etc.); creating a set of criteria by which
to determine what an equitable learning environment includes; staying abreast
of large development projects that will impact the District’s enrollment,
specifically in South Hillsboro; and preparing for the compilation of another
construction bond package for fall 2017 or spring 2018.
