CPS provides parent and community engagement groups, events, and programs in the areas of academics, social skills, and community resources. We also offer Dual Language Programs in select neighborhood schools, charter schools, and magnet schools for students identified as English Learners (ELs) or heritage language learners.
Also, students who are enrolling in CPS after relocating from abroad can have their educational credentials evaluated to receive CPS credits for prior studies.
The Refugee Educational Support Center
The Refugee Educational Support Center at Field Elementary functions as a bridge between Chicago Public Schools and local resettlement agencies and communities. It coordinates resources, academic tutoring, translation and interpretation services, professional development opportunities, and orientation to refugee students and their parents. The center also develops and sustains a network of partnerships with competent, reliable, and culturally astute providers and community organizations.
