Overview of the 2012 Call for Quality Schools
Chicago Public Schools (CPS) is committed to providing a world class education for every student in every community. We believe that every child should have access to school options that will provide him or her with the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in college and career. To achieve this ambitious goal, we have identified several key strategic initiatives. The Call for Quality Schools ("the Call"), our process for identifying new high quality options, represents one of these key initiatives. More specifically, the District is seeking teachers, administrators, national education management organizations, current school leadership teams, and non-profit institutions from Chicago and nationwide to respond to this Call with proposals that demonstrate the capacity to run high quality new schools operating under charter, contract, or District governance models.
On June 29, 2012, the District released the 2012 Call for Quality Schools to solicit proposals for schools to open in the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 school years. Educators who would like to open new Charter, Contract, or District Replicator schools should respond to the Call with proposals for their schools. Proposals are due on August 13, 2012
