“This National Teacher Appreciation Week, we take time to honor the incredible teachers we have across this city, who dedicate their lives to supporting our students and providing them with an education that is key to their future success. With the support and guidance from a great teacher, a child’s potential is limitless. But educating our children is not only the responsibility of our teachers. With parents as active partners in our children’s education, there is no limit to what our children can achieve.”
Chicago Public Schools serves 403,000 students in 681 schools. It is the nation’s third-largest school district.
