What We Do
The Fund believes that solutions to the challenges in public schools exist. We devote time, leverage data and invest in programs and initiatives that enable Chicago to attract, support and keep strong principals.
"Behind every strong school is a strong principal with a pulse in the community. The Fund’s critical efforts have helped define Chicago Public Schools as a national leader in urban education by providing unparalleled opportunities and resources for principal leadership
development and collaboration."
“Five years ago, The Fund put the issue of school leadership at the center of the conversation in Chicago. We know that students with stronger principals learn more. We need The Fund to continue to focus on making sure every student in every school has the principal they deserve.”

They emerged from that work with a national resource that focuses on two time strategies that emerged as most promising to provide concrete solutions to some of the common challenges with home-based learning.Access the Resource
