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!
