CPS Connects Initiative
CPS Connects breaks down the false barriers between learning that happens in school and the educational opportunities outside of a student’s school or neighborhood. It allows children to collaborate with teachers to develop their own individualized learning paths, take advantage of opportunities and resources to push beyond mastery of individual skills, and empower them to learn in a way that maximizes their limitless potential. Because children achieve best when their learning is reinforced and supported in multiple settings, CPS Connects provides young people with connected learning environments that link learning in school, home and community.
