  • Every HCPSS school, and each HCC department, is assigned an HCLS branch and liaison.
  • Each student receives an HCLS card through school registration.
  • Kindergarten field trips to HCLS are part of the HCPSS' curriculum.
  • HCLS instructors teach A+ Curriculum classes at HCLS branches, and in the schools.
  • HCPSS and HCLS collaborate on curriculum and signature events.
