Scaling Up & Research

Hill strives to develop new programs, partnerships, and alliances that will increase its impact and reach. During the past year, many exciting developments have occurred in Hill Outreach. First, Hill was proud to be selected as the winner of the 2013 Social Impact Exchange National Business Plan Competition, garnering national attention and support for its plans for scale up of the Hill Reading Achievement Program (HillRAP). The Competition was sponsored by Growth Philanthropy Network and the Duke Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship (CASE), and focuses on bringing promising social solutions to scale and gathering together grant-makers and philanthropists interested in supporting that work.


Hill continues to be an innovator in curriculum and assessment for students who struggle with learning. This year, a technology visioning process has resulted in development of a 4-year plan for a Hill Reading Achievement Program Instructional Management System (HillRAP IMS), which will result in the infusion of technology innovation into Hill teacher training and HillRAP implementation. The HillRAP IMS will provide enhanced teacher support, a continuous assessment tool, automatic data capture, and more robust results reporting, as well as a Student App for increased student practice opportunities. In partnership with MetaMetrics, Inc., Hill is also developing new scales for measuring student growth consistent with the HillRAP methodology.
