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) 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. In 2015, The Fund made a strategic shift to include solely school leaders on the EAC.
