Renaissance 2010 

Overview

The early successes of the first group of charter schools in Chicago set the stage for Renaissance 2010, an initiative designed to create more high-quality educational options across Chicago.

 

In June 2004, Mayor Richard Daley launched Renaissance 2010, a bold initiative whose goal is to increase the number of high-quality educational options in communities across Chicago by 2010. New schools are created through a competitive, community-based selection process which establishes a set of high standards to which every new school will be held accountable. In 2005, Chicago Public Schools opened the first “cohort” of Renaissance 2010 schools.

Goals

  • Offer high-quality education options to serve the diverse needs of students
  • Commit to serving the priority communities established from the onset of the initiative, especially those not yet served

Overview

  • Keep the steps to opening a new school a community-based process
  • Serve the remaining priority communities identified from the beginning of the Renaissance 2010 initiative

Resources

Renaissance 2010 is committed to serving the priority communities established from the onset of the initiative, especially those not yet served.
