Applications are due to the Department of Education on July 27, 2012.
Eligible applicants (non-profit organizations or institutions of higher education) intending to work with one or multiple CPS schools must submit a pre-application to the district in order to receive CPS support on the required memorandum of understanding.
Prospective Planning and Implementation applicants should complete the CPS Promise Neighborhoods Partner Proposal and submit to Beatriz Jimenez (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 4:00 PM on July 2, 2012. Late applications will not be considered.
Pre-applications received by the deadline will be reviewed by a committee for content, organizational capacity, and alignment to district priorities. Selected applicants will be notified no later than July 10, 2012.
Note: Principals, teachers, and CAO’s are not permitted to endorse Promise Neighborhood applications on behalf of the district on their own; only applications selected through this process will receive district support.
