CPS offers a variety of ways for community members to help students, teachers and schools. A few ways community members can get involved is listed below.
Local School Councils
Composed of the principal, teachers, parents and community members, they work together to develop the school budget, choose the principal and select the School Improvement Plan for Advancing Academic Achievement (SIPAAA).
Join CPS and help us become the premier urban school district in the country.
Volunteers are an important resource for Chicago Public Schools. Whether you prefer a one day project or year-long tutoring, there are a variety of opportunities available.
Family and Community Engagement (FACE)
FACE works to enlist the participation of families and community stakeholders in dialogue pertaining to the quality of schools and improvement of educational choices for our children through the formation of Community Action Councils and participation in Community Dialogues.
