Have questions about partnering with CPS THIS year?

Ingenuity, Communities In Schools of Chicago, and Chicago Literacy Alliance have come together to answer as many as we can at our Back 2 School event! Take a look at some of the resources below.

 


The District underwent several major changes throughout the pandemic, and many partners — along with the rest of Chicago’s arts ed sector — are seeking guidance in preparation for the coming school year. We designed this event to serve as a virtual roadmap for both new and seasoned community partner organizations working in CPS amid these ongoing changes.

Back 2 School will feature live virtual and pre-recorded sessions covering the fundamentals of working with CPS within the current context, tools for supporting partnerships, and insights from CPS leaders. Check out the schedule below!
