Hillsborough Schools would like your input!

Hillsborough Schools is in the process of selecting a new Learning Management System (LMS) and we would like input from our families and employees to help make the decision.

This new system will focus on delivering an engaging online learning environment to students, help keep parents connected to student learning, and assist teachers and administrators with managing and delivering course content.

The district evaluation committee has three LMS candidates—and has put together a website that contains videos from each company demonstrating what they can do, as well as a short survey. We encourage you to take a moment and watch each video, then complete the survey.

Referendum Results #HalfPennyPromise

Referendum Update

The first revenue check from the Education Referendum’s half-penny sales tax arrived in early April. Work is underway in many of our schools to deliver on our #HalfPennyPromise. Already, we’ve seen new playgrounds constructed and tracks and gymnasium floors refurbished. Planning has also advanced on our larger projects, like air conditioning replacements and roof repairs. Construction on those projects will begin this summer when students are off campus.

View the list of projects currently under way.

Achievement Schools Teacher Incentives Announced

Teachers in Achievement Schools are eligible for pay differential up to $13,000 a year including special incentives. This incentive, called Spark, is designed to spark teachers’ interest, which will in turn spark the minds of the children they’ll inspire. Bonus pay and free or discounted child care are part of the incentives. The district designated 50 schools as Achievement Schools in the fall of 2018 to focus on students with the highest needs. We seek special teachers for these positions.
