Sucess Project

From The University of Chicago:

The Success Project is a new partnership between the Lefkofsky Family Foundation, the University of Chicago’s Urban Education Institute, the Chicago Public School, and the Academy for Urban School Leadership. The project aims to better prepare middle grade students for success in high school by providing academic preparation, social supports, and help identifying “right fit” high schools. The project will be in 34 Chicago public schools and beginning in January, Success Coordinators will embed themselves inside 10 of the schools to work with middle school teachers, counselors, and school leaders on the programming. Staff at the remaining 24 schools will receive professional development training.
