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.

Chicago Public Schools has focused on improving its financial foundation and funding those activities that will improve the educational achievement of our students.
