About the Program Initiative

COMMUNITY GOAL

Build Upon the African American Cultural Legacy


PROGRAM INITIATIVE

Quality Education Initiative


In light of the Hill District Education Council’s (HDEC) goal of having three-quarters of students in the Hill reach grade-level proficiency in reading and math within the year, effort needs to be made to improve the quality of education in the Hill. Strategies for this recommended by the HDEC include designing and implementing a culturally-relevant curriculum, requiring foreign language study, addressing how suspensions are handled, giving principals more autonomy, and assuring good teachers and administrators in the Hill. Furthermore, the HDEC calls upon parents and faith communities to be strongly involved in making change happen.

The quality education initiative goes beyond this serious need for immediate improvement in local schools to cover the educational needs of the full range of Hill District residents.

Goals
Have three-quarters of students in the Hill reach gradelevel proficiency in reading and math. Equip  residents for success in the innovation economy.
