Chicago Schools Five Essentials for Improvement

Nearly 600 Chicago schools gained access to customized reports produced by the University of Chicago Urban Education Institute to help schools organize, prioritize, evaluate, and achieve sustainable improvement, which can be found here.

The Five Essentials are:

  • Effective leaders: The principal works with teachers to implement a clear vision for success.
  • Collaborative teachers: The staff is committed to the school and works as a team.
  • Ambitious instruction: Classes are academically challenging and engaging.
  • Supportive environment: The school is safe, orderly, and supportive.
  • Involved families: The entire school builds relationships with families and the community.
