OUR LATEST REPORT
This report showcases promising practices from participants in our Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) and Fall Design Studio. Each school highlighted began by identifying the problem they were trying to solve and seeking input from teachers, students, parents, and community members. Through surveys and focus groups, they gained an understanding of stakeholders’ needs, perspectives, and challenges. To test and refine potential solutions, they developed prototypes of projects to adopt at their schools.
We invest in data-driven strategies that increase the number of strong leaders in Chicago’s public schools. Our program, policy, and partnership efforts are designed to meet leaders where they are, to accelerate their growth, and to enable their retention
The Fund is committed to advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism in all our work. We are a trusted partner of Chicago’s district, charter, philanthropic, and civic communities.
