About The Hill Center’s partnerships in Durham. Literacy improvement is one of the most critical needs of students in Durham where 55% of 3rd graders do not read at grade level. There is a clear and deep need for effective literacy interventions both in Durham schools and the non-profit organizations that serve students. In 2016, Hill launched the East Durham Learning Collaborative, which brings the research-based Hill Reading Achievement Program (HillRAP) to five schools serving high-need students in grades K-7. Hill also forges partnerships with community based groups that serve students during out of school time. These partnerships aim to close early literacy gaps through the HillRAP intervention and targeted coaching and supports.
