Current CPS staff can expand their career opportunities and help reduce shortages in high-need subject areas by earning
new teaching credentials.
We will work with universities in the Chicago area and beyond to offer tuition discounts to paraprofessionals
who pursue teaching licenses and to teachers who seek additional endorsements in bilingual education,
special education or STEM fields.
Teachers often say that the professional development they value most comes from colleagues, who understand the challenges
in their schools and classrooms. We will continue to train some of the district’s top teachers to provide professional
development to their peers in content areas, such as pedagogy, social-emotional learning and restorative student
discipline. Developing teacher leaders can also create a career pathway toward a principalship.
