Increase the percentage of partners who report they feel engaged with CPS.


83% of parents that they have opportunities to participate in making decisions that affect the whole school community.


92% of parents report that there are many different ways they can be involved with the school.

I hope one day CPS will be an engaging and intellectual space to learn, think critically, and disrupt paradigms of identity.
