Resilience and Reimagination
This school year, we are serving 187 principals and 141 aspiring principals who impact more than 134,000 Chicago public school students every day. Our mid-year report highlights how we are supporting leaders to grow, stay, and collaborate this year and beyond.
"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.”
How are principals innovating through remote and hybrid learning?
Our blog's Practical Principal series features examples of strategies Chicago public school leaders are using to keep their school communities connected during remote and hybrid learning. We not only show you the innovative work that they are doing, but also teach you how to replicate it for your school communities.
