HITN Television Offline Due to Hurricane Sandy
Wind and water surges in Brooklyn have rendered HITN’s Navy Yard-based satellites inoperable. The station hopes to be back online in a few days, once damages have been assessed and repaired.
Viewers can check in with their local providers for updates and updates will be posted on the HITN.org website.
Jose Luis Rodriguez founded HITN in 1983, a non-profit organization with the purpose of advancing the educational, cultural, and socio-economic aspirations of the Hispanic community.
HITN’s focus on education has grown to include cloud-based projects, like the new HITN Learning program, which begins its initial pilot phase this week and is designed to directly address the Common Core State Standards, providing students in grades 3-6 with the perfect online tool to practice English Language Arts, mathematics, and writing according to a previous press release.
Just recently, HITN announced a new partnership with Connect to Compete, the global non-profit with a history of connecting low-income individuals to broadband and digital literacy training to promote broadband adoption and improve outcomes in disadvantaged communities, according to a previous press release issued by the company.
