Remember that District numbers include some students who are not enrolled in our comprehensive high schools or in HOA. These could be students at Miller Education Center East, in our Transition Program, adjudicated youth, or students who are on out-of-district placements.

*Please refer to the document Understanding Graduation Rates for more information. And please refer to 2014-15 Grad Rate Information for comparisons to other districts and historical data.

**Other Completers/Completion Rate includes graduates with a regular or modified diploma, as well as those with an Adult High School Diploma, Extended Diploma, or GED.  In 2014-15, 102 students were pursuing an alternative certificate or were continuing their enrollment, and 187 were considered other non-completers--meaning they had either dropped out or had not declared their plans for completing the credits necessary for graduation.

***Please note that the drop-out rate is still calculated using the NCES model, which divides the total number of drop-outs in a given year in grades 9-12 by the number of students in grades 9-12--the numbers and rate do not correlate directly to information about the cohort.

Therefore, the following is true about the graduating class of 2015, which is actually the 2011-12 cohort, as the cohort is named by the first year students entered high school:

  • 1293 graduated with a regular diploma on time in 2015
  • 62 graduated with a modified diploma on time in 2015
  • 41 earned an adult high school diploma, extended diploma, or GED
  • 7 earned an alternative certificate
  • 95 were continuing their enrollment beyond 2015
  • 187 were classified as "other non-completers" - either dropouts or undeclared as to their plans to complete the credits necessary for graduation
  • Some of those 187 (perhaps most) are in the group of 193 students who dropped out in the 2014-15 school year, though that group also includes freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who dropped out in 2014-15 who are not members of the 2011-12 cohort.
Hillsboro 2035 Plan

The new Hillsboro 2035 Community Plan extends the success of the original Hillsboro 2020 Plan, providing a shared vision for Hillsboro’s future and a detailed action plan for working toward that collective vision. The ideas in the plan are based on input from thousands of community members in cooperation with local organizations who have agreed to share implementation responsibilities.

 

Education and community involvement comprise one of the focus areas of the 2035 Plan. The first initiative in this focus area is to "pursue and promote continued excellence in Hillsboro schools," which includes these action items:

  • Reducing student-to-teacher classroom ratios
  • Developing advanced learning experiences (STEAM) in schools with help from the community
  • Increasing the percentage of students enrolled in challenging curriculums including Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs
  • Expanding dual credit programs and increasing student enrollment in college
  • Establishing a community school support program to help meet education needs with help from parents and professionals.
