Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am honored to serve as Interim Superintendent in this renowned school district and want to extend a warm welcome to the 2017-18 school year! I have truly enjoyed meeting students, staff, parents and community members and learning about what makes Hillsborough such a special place for learning and growing.
I look forward to continuing the collaboration with staff, parents and the community to provide an exemplary educational program for all Hillsborough City School District students. Our small class sizes, safe and clean schools, and overall excellence would not be possible were it not for the fact that we work closely with all of our parents, the Hillsborough Schools Foundation, the Associated Parents’ Group, the Town of Hillsborough, the Hillsborough Police Department, Central County Fire, the Hillsborough Beautification Foundation, the Hillsborough Garden Club, and many more civic and community organizations. Our students’ success is something that we can all be proud of.
As a school district, we set high expectations for all students in learning environments which also support socio-emotional growth. The combination of these factors leads to high academic achievement which has always been one of our most important goals. Each year we see our students performing well across various local and state measures. In keeping with high expectations supported by socio-emotional programs for all students, and developing new initiatives and policies, we keep our Essential Outcomes at the forefront of our work for our students:
With the support of the entire school community, students will work towards becoming…
- People of good character
- Innovators and problem solvers
- Effective communicators
- Global citizens
- Lifelong learners
- Effective users of information, media, and technology
If at any time you have questions or concerns regarding your child or any aspect of the school district’s operation, please do not hesitate to give me, your principal, or one of our directors a call. The phrase “open door policy” means something in this district, and you will find us all to be very accessible and ready to listen. I would also like to take this opportunity to invite you to attend the Superintendent Coffees during the year. These meetings give you an opportunity to learn more about the district and to ask questions and make comments. Please see the Master Calendar for dates of these coffees
The beginning of the school year provides a fresh start for each of us: a new year of optimism, high expectations, and commitment. We have dedicated staff, talented administrators, and a special community that supports our schools. Please remember that your individual and collective involvement in your school makes an enormous difference, and we thank you in advance for your participation!
Louann Carlomagno, Interim Superintendent
