The Hewlett Foundation seeks to help student compete globally and become engaged citizens at home. To that end, we work to align K-12 schools in the U.S. to deliver and measure deeper learning—a set of six interrelated competencies: mastering rigorous academic content, learning how to think critically and solve problems, working collaboratively, communicating effectively, directing one’s own learning, and developing an academic mindsets — a belief in one’s ability to grow.

School Retool

School Retool is a professional development fellowship that helps school leaders like you redesign your school culture using small, scrappy experiments called “hacks.” Hacks may start small, but they’re built on research-based practices that lead to Deeper Learning, and can create the kind of big change you aspire to—namely, preparing your students for life in the real world.
