What's new at the HIL Project?

ATTENTION HIL Project Cohort A and B Participants, District Leaders, and ISD Partners

During the week of October 26th-29th, we are offering you a networking series of 75 minute sessions. Each session will begin with a brief introduction followed by a 45 minute breakout session where you will have the opportunity to discuss a question of focus with participants from other schools.

HIL offers home-based, family activities!

Did you know that daily life in the home is full of opportunities to engage children in what we call The Four Pillars of Home-based Literacy—Talking, Reading, Thinking, and Writing? Get started today with our large menu of fun family activities that promote HIL Project's Four Pillars of Home-based Literacy!

"'We’re in this together.’
There’s nothing more inspiriting than hearing that kind of energy coming from a classroom teacher. We know that’s where the difference is made. What we really think is happening? [The HIL Project] is restoring hope."
