Quality Schools

If you're looking for information about the 2015-16 school actions, please visit cps.edu/transitions.

Every child in every neighborhood in Chicago deserves access to a high quality education that prepares them to succeed in life. For too long, however, children in certain parts of Chicago have been cheated out of the resources they need to succeed in the classroom because they are in underutilized, under-resourced schools. By consolidating these schools, we can focus on safely getting every child into a better performing school close to their home. Each welcoming school will have the things that parents, teachers and CPS agree students need—a library, air conditioning, dramatic technology upgrades, and counseling and social work support. Consolidating schools is the best way to make sure all of our city's students get the resources they need to learn and succeed.
