Who We Work With

We work with community stakeholders like you who have a vision for the future of your schools and community. In partnership with the FACE and Equity teams, our department supports you in making this vision a reality.

What We Do

By working within the communities of CPS, our ultimate goal is to advance CPS’ Five Year Vision by empowering communities to improve educational opportunities in their neighborhoods. We’re responsible for:

  • Partnering with communities to strengthen education within their neighborhoods.
  • Identifying and motivating community partners (e.g., philanthropy, non-profit, university, etc.) to support communities in creating education-based goals for their neighborhoods and students.
  • Managing and improving the community-led school model exploration toolkit and process.
  • Providing feedback to improve cross-departmental tools to ensure they are meeting community needs. These include the GoCPS enrollment platform,  Annual Regional Analysis (ARA), Equity Index Mapping, Space Utilization, and Academic RFP.
  • Supporting students, families, and schools impacted by school transitions.
