Reading is fundamental. The City of Chicago’s book club programs not only make reading fun, but provide an educational tool that extends beyond the classroom.
Students take advantage of a broad array of summer school activities in addition to their academic programs. Keep Kids Learning schools provide a comprehensive summer program that includes academics and enrichment.
Every student has the opportunity to receive a first-rate mathematics and science education; and every teacher, parent and administrator is provided with the tools necessary to achieve that high-standard of education.
Our ongoing reading initiative seeks to ensure that students will function as readers, writers, and critical thinkers every day. We provide the framework and instruction to ensure that our students improve their reading and literacy skills.
In June 2004, a new initiative was launched to increase the number of high-quality educational options in communities across the City by 2010. Find out more about the program and the new schools launched through this competitive community-based selection process.
