Whole School Comprehensive Safety Plans

The Whole School Comprehensive Safety Plan is part of CPS’ effort to create a more holistic approach to school safety.

To ensure the voices of our students, families, and communities are heard in this effort, we are partnering with community-based organizations to engage the community for feedback and to develop a list of school safety strategies for schools to be presented to the Chicago Board of Education. These school safety options will then be shared with school principals by the start of the 2021-22 school year so they’re able to select an option that best suits their school community.


Community-based organizations are invited to apply to be part of our citywide engagement process around school safety plans. Selected organizations will receive compensation for their support.

Applications are due no later than Monday, November 30, 2020 at 12 p.m. Please submit applications and any questions to
