An Additional Learning Opportunity program of Chicago Public Schools
The Next Generation: Chicago's Children – was developed after listening carefully to the concerns of thousands of citizens and civic leaders across the City of Chicago. They have heard from parents and community members, from principals and teachers, religious leaders and business leaders, elected officials and philanthropists.
This 5-year plan is not intended to sit on a shelf. It is an action roadmap to achieving our vision of a high-quality education for every child in the district. Within this framework they have outlined strategies that will be refined and strengthened as they move forward in response to your feedback, to lessons learned along the way, and to new insights into how best to achieve their collective goals.
At CPS, their vision is that every student in every neighborhood will be engaged in a rigorous, well-rounded instructional program and will graduate prepared for success in college, career and life.
