Supporting Extraordinary Learning Experiences to Help Students Succeed

Every child in Hammond deserves access to a quality public education.


In order to make that vision a reality in the School City of Hammond, a district where the majority of students are enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program, we must recruit, train, and retain the very best educators. We believe that an empowered teaching force is the lever in addressing the very real gaps affecting our school district and community.  Our investments reflect that belief.

Learn more about our board and how you can get involved here.
