If you’re interested in making calls like CEO Brizard did, CPS is hosting phone bank drives targeting Track E parents now through August 10.  Starting August 20 through the end of the month, the District will be doing the same for Track R parents.


There are two locations to make calls:


  • Central Office; 125 S. Clark Street
  • Zenos Colman Elementary School; 4655 S. Dearborn Street


Signing up is easy, and you can choose your day and time. So please sign up today at, for the Central Office location, and at, for the Coleman Elementary phone bank. You can also call our hotline at (773) 553-3277.


Volunteering your time making calls would be greatly appreciated and you'll be helping our CPS students!


And be sure to purchase a Kit for Kidz for CPS students via our offer in partnership with Groupon.  Over 1,000 Kits for Kidz have already been purchased and we are on track to surpass the total number of kits sold last year.  Thank you all for your generosity.
