Hillsboro Students Begin School Year in a Soft Start

Students in the Hillsboro School District are slated to begin remote classes on Monday, September 14, but are moving forward with a “soft start” to the school year today.

During the soft start, teachers are reaching out to students and families to establish a relationship and connection, and to see if there are any technology or other needs the school can help fulfill. Teachers are also completing additional professional development to ensure they are ready for the new Comprehensive Distance Learning environment.

Widespread power outages throughout the region may impact some of the outreach attempts and/or professional development.

Chief Communications Officer for HSD Beth Graser joined AM Extra Tuesday to talk about the outages, the soft start, and how parents and students can get help if technology is not cooperating (student and family helpdesk at 503-886-8956 or techhelp@hsd.k12.or.us).
