2016 Principal Celebration
Today, The Fund hosted an end-of-year Principal Celebration, generously sponsored by ContextMedia and Leadership Council Member Shradha Agarwal, for principals from several programs, including all three Chicago Principals Fellowship cohorts, both cohorts of the Independent Schools Principal (ISP) program, our Educator Advisory Committee, Breakthrough Schools: Chicago, this year’s Cahn Fellows, and principals who have participated in our Summer Design Program. All told, our team has relationships with 150 principals through these programs.
Especially in this difficult year, principal leadership matters. Chicago is incredibly lucky to have such talented, innovative leaders, and we wanted to thank and recognize them during this challenging time.
Perhaps most importantly, we wanted to deliver a message: Chicago needs our best principals. The 400,000 students in 680 schools across the city need them. Though times may be divisive, we need their leadership in our schools more than ever.
Thank you to everyone who joined us!
