Hi Lisa, thanks for connecting with me. I just received the school strategy report this morning, showing the priorities of CPS. I did not see anything focusing on social and emotional support, or of expanding the network of adults helping kids make better decisions during non-school hours so they come to school better prepared for learning during the school day. Nor did I see a use of maps to show where the CPS programs and resources were distributed and what forms of supports were reaching kids in areas with high poverty and poorly performing schools.
Through on-line forums like this we can point to ideas that might not be on the education leadership radar, and hope that they will find them, and incorporate them into their own strategies.
