Educator Advisory Committee

The Fund remains committed to our belief that great principals and teachers are the key to creating classrooms and schools that help all children succeed. In early 2013, we created the Educator Advisory Committee (EAC) in order to provide principal and teacher leaders with the opportunity to work together around the complex challenges facing schools in Chicago. Building upon a successful 2013 EAC, The Fund expanded the cohort in 2014 to include principals and teachers from both district and charter schools.

To help us reach our goal of making Chicago the best city to lead a public school, the 2015 cohort is comprised of district and charter principals, assistant principals and school leaders from diverse public schools from across Chicago, all of whom share a commitment to accelerating student learning in both their classrooms and schools.
