Financial Information

It is our goal to provide financial leadership to the Chicago Board of Education according to government regulations, Board policies and sound financial practices; to maintain the fiscal integrity of the organization; to develop internal and external partnerships; to educate students in a safe and well-rounded environment; and to work with leaders at the federal, state, and local levels to ensure adequate funding and support for educational initiatives.
