Demonstration School Visits

2019-20 Demonstration School Visits

The Network for College Success and the McDougal Family Foundation, in collaboration with Chicago Public Schools, selects outstanding high schools to serve as our Demonstration Schools. These schools will promote the transfer of innovation and effective practices. The overarching goal is to speed the process of high school improvement to support greater numbers of students graduating ready for college.

We are organizing Demonstration School Visits throughout the year where participants will visit classrooms or school meetings, observe practices, and debrief their observations with colleagues. School Visits will offer participants the opportunity to see how school leaders translate research into effective practice to support student success and to consider how they could use those practices in their own context. Each school will host one (1) or two (2) half-day visits this academic year.
