Graduation Information

Hillsboro School District Diploma Requirements

Essential Skills Graduation Requirement

 The state also requires that all students demonstrate that they are proficient in certain “essential skills”—skills that are deemed critical for future success – before they are awarded a diploma. Graduates must demonstrate their proficiency in the Essential Skills gradually as follows:

  • Read and comprehend a variety of text
  • Write clearly and accurately
  • Apply mathematics in a variety of settings 

Transcript Request

The below guidelines detail the transcript request process. Please fill out the request form.  You will receive an email confirmation when your transcript is ready for pick up or has been sent.

Requesting Transcript for Yourself
School transcripts are considered confidential information and can only be mailed, faxed, or picked up in person.

Requesting Transcript for Someone Else
If you are an individual requesting a transcript for another person who is over 18 years of age, we require written permission from the person in question prior to releasing any records. Parents also need written permission if their child is now over the age of 18.

Requesting Transcript Be Sent to a Third Party
If you are requesting the transcript and/or records to be sent directly to an educational institution for yourself or another person, we do not need prior written permission. Employment agencies may request graduation verification without prior permission. Other educational institutions may request transcripts and records without prior permission but must submit that request in writing. All other agencies such as military recruiters, lawyers, employers, must first send us written permission from the individual whose name appears on the records. We do not file, request, or use Social Security numbers for identification, and we request that you not include that information in your request for records.
