The Board of Education is seeking patron and staff input in selecting the next superintendent for the Hillsboro R-III School District. An online survey which lists leadership qualities of a superintendent is provided. Community and staff persons can indicate the most desired leadership qualities they perceive the new superintendent should have for our district. The results of this survey will be used by the BOE and consultants in seeking and screening applicants as well as for the development of the interview content.

The Hillsboro Class of 2018 Graduation Ceremony will be going LIVE tonight! You can watch and share this momentous event with your family and friends. Click and Like the Hillsboro R3 Facebook Page. https://www.facebook.com/HillsboroR3/ Live feed begins at 6:30 p.m., with the ceremony beginning at 7 p.m.
The graduation ceremony for Hillsboro High School has been moved to the Jefferson College Field House. Each senior received seven tickets for admission to tonight’s ceremony at graduation practice this morning. Graduating seniors will need to report to the Jefferson College Field House by 5:30 p.m. The ceremony will begin at 7:00 p.m. The reason for the last minute change of venue: in order to protect our turf field, we must use a specially made chair. Unfortunately, the chair company that carried the type of chair needed, no longer carries those chairs. We did not know this until this morning when they delivered chairs that had the potential to damage our field. No matter where our seniors receive their diplomas, this will be an incredibly special evening for everyone involved.
Congratulations to three of Hillsboro’s finest! Seniors Justin Fitzpatrick and Jessica Madding and Junior Brendan M. Young graduated from Jefferson College May 19th with an Associate of Arts degree with a STEM focus. They were the first graduates of Hillsboro High School to complete an associate degree program while concurrently attending high school. Justin and Jessica will walk in their high school graduation ceremony tomorrow evening. Brendan will return to HHS in the fall to complete his senior year of high school.
We apologize for any confusion from an email sent out, earlier this week, to Summer School parents/guardians regarding Summer School bus routes being available online.

Thank you for your patience and stay tuned! 😊 Summer School will be in session from May 29 - June 22

Last Friday, O.E. Brokerage, a family owned company out of Fenton, Mo came to Hillsboro Intermediate School to have a taste test with all the students in search of a new brand of Pizza for the school lunch program. O.E. represented Nardone Bros. Baking out of Pennsylvania. Nardone is also a family owned company that believes in making the best quality pizza. Rather than adding artificial ingredients such as imitation cheese to cut costs, Nardone believes in serving something students like to eat. The taste test went excitingly well and the students seemed to enjoy the pizza very much.
