Equity, Access, and Engagement

  • Our Purpose
    The Hillsboro School District is committed to the success of every student in each of our schools. For that success to occur, the district is committed to equity by recognizing and eliminating institutional barriers and creating access and opportunities that benefit each student. “Achieving equity” means students’ identities will not predict or predetermine their success in school.

    Educational equity is based on the principle that each student receives what is required for them to achieve success with regard to allocation of resources, opportunity, treatment, and access.

    The principle of educational equity goes beyond formal equality where all students are treated the same. Instead, educational equity fosters a barrier-free environment in which all students have the opportunity to benefit equally. Educational equity promotes equality of educational outcomes for each student and between diverse groups of students. Equity strategies are intentional, systemic and focused on the core of the teaching and learning process.
