Superintendent's Welcome

We are very pleased that you would take the opportunity to learn more about the Hillsboro R-III School District. I am not only honored to serve as Superintendent of Hillsboro R-III Schools but also to be associated with a community dedicated to continuous improvement. It is my sincere hope that we, as a community of learners, work together to provide access to knowledge for all students as we help guide and support them into becoming productive and successful members of society. In order to promote success, we as a district, must work to transform our district into an educational institution that transcends time. Together we can empower students to take ownership of their learning and authorship of the future of our district while celebrating each moment of student success. In order for our district to transform from "Good to Great" we must continue to develop and revise a challenging curriculum, employ high-quality educators, and establish a positive climate that is conducive to educational success.

I want to thank each of you for being a part of "HR3"….where students count, teachers care, and children are first.

Please feel free to contact the district at any time should you have questions.

Dr. Aaron D. Cornman
Superintendent of Schools

"I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming."

- Johann Wolfgang Von Goeth
