Ongoing School Support
Once a new school opens its doors to students and families, Hebrew Public provides a full range of ongoing support to individual schools, including:
- Curricular Resources, including those relating to Hebrew and the Culture and History of Israel and its Immigrant Communities
- Coaching and Mentoring of School Leaders and Board Members
- Operating Loans and Grants
- Support for Innovative Classroom Projects
- Site Visits
- Teacher Evaluation Practices
- Student Data Systems
- Legal Issues
In addition to individualized school support, Hebrew Public works to strengthen our entire network of schools through:
- Regional and National Convening
- Hebrew Charter School Institute
- On-line Courses for Staff
- Sharing of Best Practices
- Research and Evaluation
Hebrew Public’s services, including technical assistance, consulting, site visits, recruitment, professional development, curricular resources, access to grants and loans, and more, are made possible both by the Center’s funders, and through fee arrangements with network schools.

Hebrew Public School Network
To build a sustainable educational movement, Hebrew Public believes that it is critical that schools and educators are able to form alliances across the traditional boundaries of classrooms, schools and geography. Therefore, at the heart of our work is an effort to build an active, cohesive school network. We encourage and facilitate school leaders to share ideas, experiences, and strategies in order to address common concerns, issues, needs and goals. By coming together as a network, school leaders are able to provide tangible forms of peer level support, including the sharing of resources and collaborative programming. Teachers are able to share lesson plans and instructional resources through our on–line community.
Hebrew Public works with public charter schools and planning groups who focus on the instruction of the Hebrew language and culture, as well as the study of the culture and history of Israel and its immigrant communities. Hebrew Public provides schools within its network with access to a wealth of resources, professional development and training opportunities in Hebrew instruction through the proficiency-based approach, differentiated instruction, co-teaching models and student developed service learning projects.
