E.L. Haynes' vision is to make a lasting impact on education locally and nationally. We work to transform public education through strategic partnerships and specially-designed programs, serving as a national model of leadership, excellence, and innovation. Our programs impact tens of thousands of students across DC.
E.L. Haynes’ DC Common Core Collaborative, supported by a $1.4 million Race to the Top grant from OSSE, supported DC’s transition to the Common Core State Standards. More than 100 teachers from 30 public schools participated in the program, impacting more than 11,000 DC students.
In order to meet the critical need for outstanding teachers, E.L. Haynes and KIPP DC created the Capital Teaching Residency program in 2009 to cultivate a pipeline of exceptional talent for DC schools. By 2016, CTR will train nearly 260 new teachers who will impact more than 30,000 students citywide.
Each summer, E.L. Haynes staff members gather for professional development around a shared goal: closing the achievement gap between white students and students of color. Piloted by former E.L. Haynes principal Michelle Molitor, Race and Equity Seminars (REES) began at E.L. Haynes in 2009 and have been replicated across the city.
