"There's a call nationwide for public-private partnership. So we had the idea of extending our work with Project Zero to the city at large," says WIS Head of School Clayton Lewis. The idea was embraced and the E.E. Ford Foundation awarded WIS its prestigious Educational Leadership grant that will support the organizing and hosting of WISSIT.
