Breakthrough Schools: Chicago

Breakthrough Schools: Chicago is a national competition for school leaders to develop and launch personalized learning innovations in Chicago. This citywide initiative is designed to move beyond tinkering with what we have, and develop the more effective solutions we need.

The local-national partnership led by Chicago’s LEAP Innovations, Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) and The Fund, aims to propel the nation’s third largest school district toward a critical mass of powerful, next-generation schools, disseminating best practices so all students are prepared to succeed with 21st Century skills. Chicago and Washington, D.C., were home to the first two regional NGLC efforts in the nation.
