Students, teachers and administrators across the Hillsboro School District who wanted to update outdated technology lamented the failure of the five-year, $25 million bond last month. The schools would have received new laptops, among many other things, had the bond passed.

But thanks to an $8,000 donation from First Tech Credit Union, students at two Hillsboro elementary schools – Jackson and Eastwood – will soon be using new Google Chromebook laptops.

First Tech made the donation through the Hillsboro Schools Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that provides grant money for schools and teachers, just in time for the holidays. the credit union called on Dec. 2, said foundation executive Aron Carleson, and the two schools each had $4,000 just over a week later.

HSF Boosts Support for After-School Homework Programs!

For the past five school years, HSF has committed $15,000 per year to fund homework help programs provided by Hillsboro Parks & Recreation at four Hillsboro elementary schools and two middle schools. To make an even bigger impact on the positive academic performance of Hillsboro children, HSF has committed an additional $5,000 for the next two years to help provide homework help sessions at Hillsboro Park & Recreation’s BLAST after-school youth enrichment program serving 17 elementary schools five days per week.

These homework help programs provide a safe and supportive place for children to get help with homework, improve their grades, gain confidence, and be more successful. HSF is proud to be a part of making these valuable programs possible.
