Throughout the 2020-2021 school year, Headwater Learning Solutions engaged its community in the collaborative development of a four-year Strategic Plan, which came into effect September 1, 2021.

2021–2025 HLS Strategic Plan


By 2025, Headwater Learning Solutions will spark national action to improve under-served learner outcomes and educator efficacy.

Authentic relationships expand our community.

Innovation and equity in education are advanced.

Knowledge is shared and amplified.


Authentic relationships expand our community

Central to any learning community are relationships: between educator and learner, between education partners, and between the education system and society. Through intentional collaboration and efforts to grow and connect a variety of networks, Headwater Learning Solutions will expand its diverse network in service of creating opportunities for and magnifying project impact.


Innovation and equity in education are advanced

Headwater Learning Solutions believes education can be better, for all learners. A primary focus of this work is the Indigenous Education Initiative, which strives to improve equity and access for Indigenous youth. Simultaneously, work continues nurturing innovation and building an inclusive, transformative vision for the future of learning that meets the needs of all learners.


Innovation and equity in education are advanced

A small team can do great work; a small team with a global network can change the world. The work being done through Headwater Learning Solution and its partners is too important to be limited by in-person access. Sharing learnings, results, and programs ensures the greatest number of learners and learning communities are impacted as quickly as possible.
