    The Hillsboro School District recognizes athletic/activity participation as an integral part of the education process. Experience has shown that such participation promotes and supports the academic mission of school, as well as the contribution to students' social and personal development. Students who represent their schools should set high expectations for themselves in all areas of school life, but particularly in the classroom.
