PRINCIPAL APPRECIATION CAMPAIGN
Celebrate Chicago’s School Leaders
This is the eighth year of Chicago’s citywide Principal Appreciation Campaign, in which we join forces with school communities, city officials, and corporate leaders to lift up the great work of our hardworking school leaders. The theme of this year’s celebration is Transformational Leadership. We know that Chicago principals serve as a positive force for change in their schools, encouraging their teams and inspiring students as they work together to build knowledge and skills.
We invest in data-driven strategies that increase the number of strong leaders in Chicago’s public schools. Our program, policy, and partnership efforts are designed to meet leaders where they are, to accelerate their growth, and to enable their retention
The Fund is committed to advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism in all our work. We are a trusted partner of Chicago’s district, charter, philanthropic, and civic communities.
