Satisfaction Survey - Parental Notification (pulse aquí para ver en español)
Students between the ages of 12 and 19 who visit the SBHC
may be asked to complete an
anonymous survey after their visit. The survey asks
about the student’s satisfaction and experience at the SBHC, as well as some
general questions about their physical and mental health status. Students can
refuse to take the survey and this will not affect their ability to get care at
the SBHC. To see a copy of the survey, please go to the “SBHC Data
Requirements” link on
If you have questions about the survey, please contact the SBHC State Program

In 2009, the Hillsboro School District, in collaboration with the Washington County Commission on Children and Families, was awarded a school-based health center planning grant from the state of Oregon. Following that year of initial exploration and community meetings, it was determined that Hillsboro would seek to open a school-based health center, so year two of the planning grant was initiated with efforts focused on identifying a location--ultimately determined to be Century High School. At the same time, a federal grant application was submitted and awarded for the purchasing and siting of the building itself.
Throughout the 2011-12 school year, efforts were under way to secure proposals for the building and site work that would match our resources. After three rounds of RFPs the District finally received workable bids, and, at their August 28, 2012, meeting, the Hillsboro School Board unanimously approved the bids, allowing the work to officially begin.
The school-based health center opened in March 2013.
School-based health centers have a 25-year history in Oregon and there are currently 63 operating centers across the state. Centers are run independently of the school district and even of the school whose grounds they occupy, but schools and other community organizations are integral partners. Early on, Tuality Healthcare agreed to be a major benefactor, and since then we have secured Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center to serve as the medical sponsor. Virginia Garcia and LifeWorks Northwest will manage and staff the center, and handle all billing for services. Generous grants have also been received from the Kaiser Community Foundation at Northwest Health Foundation, and PacificSource Charitable Foundation. Other partners include Lifeworks Northwest, Washington County Mental Health, and several others.
