    Parent Input Form

    The Parent Input Form  is intended as the primary communication between parents and Hillview counselors regarding scheduling and class placement. This is the first step in communicating information about your child. We are committed to reading every detail that parents provide on these feedback forms. Please know that we seek to accommodate concerns and hopes and work very hard to ensure a high quality, safe, and nurturing program for all children. We will do our best to accommodate individual student needs and to ensure the greatest opportunity for success. If there are any questions, your child's counselor will contact you directly.  


    Please note: Hillview does not take requests for specific teachers or academies. Academy and teacher assignments are determined randomly by our student information system. If your child is served by the IEP, 504, or EL programs, please contact your case manager directly.
