We Translate Research Into Meaningful Practice
According the 2019 NAEP results, 65% of 4th graders fail to read at grade level each year.
During school year 2021-22, HILL for Literacy worked closely with Bridgeport Public Schools in CT to implement our K-3 Literacy Model in their district and help close their achievement gap. The district includes 36 schools and serves nearly 20,000 students, 89.1% of whom are minorities, 50.8% are economically disadvantaged, and 14.1% are English language learners. The HILL provided training and support around leadership practices, multi-tiered instruction, professional development, and data meeting implementation. Thanks to the hard work, collaboration, and dedication of our joint team, Bridgeport teachers saw significant improvements in their students’ literacy skills.
“The professional development we’ve received from HILL for Literacy is better than anything I’ve had in the last sixteen years.”
