|Chicago Leadership Collaborative|
At the Chicago Public Schools, our mission is to ensure that every child in every community has access to a high-quality education and graduates ready for college, career and life. To fulfill this mission we need school leaders who are bold, entrepreneurial and innovative, with a deep sense of responsibility and commitment -- not only to the students in their schools, but also to the communities in which their schools reside.
CPS principals are a key catalyst for change in our district. We provide them with the supports and flexibility they need to be successful, including allowing them to implement district-wide initiatives in ways that makes sense for their individual school environments. With this level of autonomy comes a high level of responsibility and accountability, along with generous rewards for those who succeed in boosting student achievement within their schools.
Our principal hiring process is highly selective, and we are seeking great leaders who believe in our mission and are ready to join us as we work to improve the quality of education for every student in Chicago. If you are interested in becoming a CPS principal, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 773-553-1515 to find out more!
