All schools are strong. All students are prepared
HEF’s three Priorities
- Serving as a catalyst for innovation in Henrico County Public Schools
- Preparing students K-12 for success in college, career and community
- Strengthening educational leadership
Over the past two decades, HEF has played a vital role in meeting the educational needs of our community’s children. As a foundation, we do more than just provide additional funding for public education, we are innovators working in partnership with parents, teachers and administrators, continually identifying and developing initiatives that improve school performance and student achievement. Our program and funding priorities focus on implementing research-based initiatives that enhance learning in the classroom, create best practices and complement The Henrico County Public Schools’ (HCPS) improvement plans. We support all schools in Henrico County, working to provide every student the support and resources they need for success.
HEF will achieve its mission by directing resources to research-based initiatives and system improvements that enhance learning, complement school improvement plans and are in the best interest of students. Our funding priorities provide substantive opportunities to improve academic and co-curricular excellence for all. HEF strives to ensure that every student in our county succeeds in learning and life.
- Education is the cornerstone for opportunity
