Chicago Public Schools CEO Search Recommendations from Educators
Educators for Excellence-Chicago hosted a series of focus groups with educators regarding Chicago Public Schools’ (CPS) search for a new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Chicago educators are eager to work in partnership with CPS leadership during the CEO search, so E4E-Chicago aimed to expand the opportunity for feedback by conducting educator roundtables and surveys over the summer.
Chicago Educators’ Demands for a Successful CPS Reopening
To advocate for educators’ voices in the Chicago Public Schools’ reopening plans, E4E-Chicago gathered data from 60 survey responses and over 15 focus group and meeting participants. We asked open-ended questions about what went well in the past year (SY21) and what their top priorities are for school reopening this year (SY22).
